N E W W O R K S !!

I know I'm supposed to pick O N E activity that I've learned about in New Works that was my favorite, but I cannot because they all have been my favorite. But over all , i enjoyed the color wheeled because I got a better understanding of the colors. Like how it is created, or whether it is warm or cool. I learned that a color isn't just one color but a comibination of the rainbow. Kinda like New Works. For some, New Works is just a class that you can either text, sleep , or play around. They do not take it seriously or even try to take the lesson that we are being taught to adapt them to daily life. I personally feel that being in New Works is a great opportunity to learn things about all the clusters. With A R T , I've learned that there are more aspects than just drawing or painting and that there are many different styles of drawing, such as stipple or hatchet. With M U S I C, I've learned that there is texture and lines and different forms of music. such a fast slow , curve , and straight. With T H E A T E R, I've learned that it is more than just acting or portraying a character but that there is structure in the art. Such, how you deliver a certain line, along with thinking about how each line flows together. And with D A N C E, I believe it brings all that to life. With lines of the body, facial expressions, movement with music.
New Works has taught me that our clusters are all connected in one one.... they are all A R T !

For this assignment , I had mixed feelings. In the beginning , i thought it was a great that we didn't get to choose the people on our team because it gave us a chance to get to know our classmates and create different types of ideas for our assignment. Whether it be to make it a musical , or a mime , or a cartoon , with different classmates we create different stories. The only thing i didn't like about the assignment was how we had to limit our creation to fit a certain time slot and the length of time we were given. I believe that if every group would have had more time not only for the time of our films but also the due date , the films we created would have been even more creative and entertaining.
With my groups film I feel we did a good job with the time we were provided. There were somethings that could be adjusted or made more clear for the viewers. But overall i feel it was a great film for our first short film.

i thought that meg space presentation was great. i could tell that she put alot of thought into wht she presented. it wasnt something that she thought of at the last minute and just put together for a grade. she demonstrated her creative and used sources to create something that no one would have thought about. there is nothing that i would have changed about her project because it was her way of expressing her space and i loved it .

i used to think that there was only one form of a line...straight. of course you have horizantle and diagnle but those lines are also straight. but as we rotated different teaachers, we learned about different lines. in dance we learned about curved lines, slanted lines , walking lines ,running lines and alot more. that showed to me how we as humans and other living things make lines everyday.the movement of our legs , the point of our fingers,arms when we move them in any direction , and some many other waaays. in music , there are lines in staff notes, voice lines, and the way you hold a note. in art there are lines when you draw. in art lines are present everywhere because in order to create art we have to use lines. lines are present everywhere ,they are apart of our way of life.
