Toy project

For my 3D project I had to make a toy that has never been made before. So I decided to make a line of stuff animals that so children were there food comes from or made from and I named it "Don't Play With Your Food". So I made a fish with sushi in it.

3D design

For my latest project we had to make disfunction furniture out of foam blocks. I used the top of a bed and the bottom of a lamp. After I constructed it I covered it with leaves and moss.

The bottom of this lamp

and the top pattern of the bed

I combined the two an carved it out of foam

the finishing product.

3D design

One of my projects I had to make an Alter Ego Mask. So I chose the opposite of me a evil creature that is load scary and something that cant be messed with. I took pictures of the process from begging with the shell, to adding sculpty, and with it painted and feathers.

Yea! Program

For the second week of The Yea! Program. My partner and I decided to show the children the 1st step of animation and show them about story- boarding. We taught them how a story -board works and what is its function in making a movie. The children seem to love it and we had a lot of fun teaching them.

We brought in an example of a story-board (or most likely a simple version) of a cat attacking the ball and the smacking into a chair.

The children seem to enjoy coming up with ideas. Most of them used nursery rhymes or sports events. Here are what the children came up with.

Yea!! Program

For my whole year I will be working with a volunteer group called The Yea!!! Program. I help teachers, from a local school, with any particular project they want to do but are not sure how to execute them and teach little kids about art.

My partner and I are go to Gocio Elementary to help out once a week with the art department teacher. For the first semester we are teaching the children the basics of animation. The art teacher either lets us teach the 4th graders or the 5th graders depending on the level of the project. For the first class we taught was the 4th grader. And, we showed them the motion of the body. My partner brought in his wired sculptures that show a person jumping over a wall. once we showed the children the idea of what we are doing with them, we broke them up in teams of 4 and had them do one movement of what ever scene they chose. They seem to really enjoy that project and learned a lot about how the body moves.

Here are what the children did for there projects.....

A person doing a back flip

A person jumping over a wall and landing in the splits

A person lifting weights

A person roller skating

A person kicking a soccer ball

A person doing a hand stand

A person throwing a football
