For my final project, I’m going to make a portrait collage that is made from pictures that symbolizes the memories of my past. To show how these events have created me to the person I am today. It would be a combination of painting, drawings, and magazines on a 16 x 20 canvas.
Ned seems different from other veterans. He seems very silly and positive compared to the other veterans we had so far. Ned chose to go into war instead of being drafted in. I think the fact that his family has always been in the military influenced him to go into the military also. I think it was the fact that it was a choice made him more positive than other veterans. He was proud of doing his part for his country.
Walter was very different compared to Ned. He was more serious and has a more negative view on war. Walter told us how he tried to dispose of all the equipment he used from during the war. It wasn’t until later when he recovered a jacket he was honored with from battle that made him want to remember the times he had through the Holocaust and World War II. Walter was strong and war took much away from him
For the first week of this program, it has been very interesting and fun. The idea of learning about veterans and learning different art techniques has been fun. I like the fact that the program is taken place in a veterans museum. All the artifacts in the museum shows deep emotions and contains a story. I learned that I need to be more flexible. I keep tying back to the same basic layout and methods, but I feel like this program can help me on it. Its fun to collaborate with other people and see their ideas. I’m excited to see what else will come from this program.
I had fun taking pictures and making a cool collage of them and painting without actually thinking or knowing what to paint. Also making the sculptures and putting them together with a group was really hilarious. My Favorite piece of art is the Atomic Skull.
