week #15- EC

So far,  I really enjoyed being in art class. My favorite is plaster casting, sketching in the garden, and graffiti writing. I like this activity is because I like being the garden where it is nice and quiet. Also, graffiti is fun when at first I thought it was only for gangsters. Lastly, Plaster casting was awesome. Overall  I love all the activity that you incorporated for this semester. I liked all the activities.

Week #15- Finger Painting

img_6702The experience when I was doing the finger painting was relaxing. Before doing it, I was study for my final for chemistry class, so it kind of have relieved my stress. Also to not think a lot.  I was able to paint freely. It was easier than I expected because I thought I could never paint, and paint like it when I was 10 years old. Painting with no subject made my life a lot easier than when I was in art class in middle school or an assignment I did in high school. I would say relaxing. This painting activity is different from our previous painting activity, Graffiti Writing. It can be the same is when I am relaxing doing what I want on that white paper. They are different is that on is painting so I could fix and add something new when I am messing it up while graffiti I would say it is harder. Overall, it kind of similar, is what you wanted to express on that white paper. I can’t think of any  kind of connection between them as different ways of using paint and creating visual experiences. So far,  I really enjoyed being in art class. My favorite are plaster casting, sketching in the garden, and graffiti writing. I like these activity is because I like being the garden where it is nice and quiet. Also, graffiti is fun when at first I thought it was only for gangsters. Lastly, Plaster casting was awesome. Overall  I love all the activity that you incorporated for this semester.

week #14- Instagram

I am new to Instagram. I signed up for Instagram this summer. It was hard for me to know how to use Instagram at first, but now I am kind of okay with it. I had fun taking picture with my friend and classmates. It was hard to hashtag. I hashtag it wrong, but now I am okay. I like all the photos my classmates post their photo of themselves. I would say I had a great experience posting photos. My friend was having a hard time posting her photo because I was her first time. I had to help her. After getting the hang of it, we both said that was not bad to so. I saw that each of person created a unique wording to explain their picture. I found it funny when my friend post a picture of me when I wasn’t ready.  Also the picture that they took is mostly at school. I really enjoyed reading their comments under their picture. They are so creative. So far, I had fun.

Week #14: Classmate conversation-Janett Moctezuma

 

 

Describe what the College Experience will be like for a student in 2036.

Janett Montezuma is fun to talk to. This is her fifth year doing health science. In the future, she wants to be a nurse. That was great to listen to her share her story. When we ask each other question of the day, it was fun to come with the same idea. She shared that her college experience will be like for a student in 2036 is that all the students will have access to technology. Also instead of having a professor having a powerpoint and students taking notes, it would be a professor talking and it will scan the word write into you note. In addition, my other friend said that there will be flying cars in the future and robots will be in control. We all laughed after she said that. The ideas that I came up with is school will be at home instead of at school.
