Artists Take A Stand
For this project I chose to use feminism as my current issue. I chose this because I believe that in some ways women arent treated as good as men. There are many things that contribute to this issue so I thought that it would be a good subject to express through art.
While working, I struggled after I cut out the figures. I had somewhat of an idea of what to do but I wasnt sure how expressive it was going to be. I ended up adding text to my final project and i like the way it turned out.
There is more than one message in my work. In the pictures I tried to show how different people dress because there are issues with people judging women by the way that they dress. The different quotes explain how women are smart, strong, and capeable of doing things on their own.
During this unit i learned more painting and drawing techneques. I also learned a lot about clay pieces. Knowing the basics of these things will help me in the future and im glad i know them.
I found the painting most sucsessful because I found it the least challenging. I think the painting turned out well and I liked using the paints a lot. I liked making the different shades of colors because it made your work different.
If i could do any of these again i would do the printing. I like how you can layer the colors and make your own prints. I didnt get to do much of this because of our limited materials.
