# 8 Art Event

Last night my final for Process of Art Class was part an art show.  31 students put their art of on display and had to put the whole event together.  We had to set-up, hang-up and talk about our art.  We invited members of the community and our friends and family.  I was in charge of the outreach and reception.    We had a great turn out and I was able to share my hard work with my family and friends.

# 7 Art Event

I visited the Fallbrook library to view the exhibit called “Every Picture Tells a Story” Each picture was a hand drawn illustration or a collage.  Almost every piece was already published in a book or was a proposed to be in a book.  Kathleen McCord was one of the artists who painted with watercolors.  I really liked her image “J is for Jaguar” image it was Jaguars dancing at a disco and having fun.  I loved the movement and the sense of the Jaguars having fun.  Every detail was well thought out and very well done.

1. Title: Every Picture tells a Story Date: December 2, 2013 and nature of the event: Children book illustration.

2.       What did you come away with from the event? (What will you will remember about it?) What I will remember about this event will be the colorful pictures of each illustration.

3.     Was there something specific in the work that could affect/influence your own work?  The playfulness and movement of all the images.

4. Did you discover anything that might change the way you look/think/feel about something?  I will most likely use my imagination more.

5. Was there any flaw in the event that you found noteworthy and can intelligently criticize? (not just, “It sucked!”)

The flaw to this show was the chairs that were stacked up against the same wall as the art.  People were sitting in the chairs and didn’t move so I could see the pictures.  I had to look from a distance at one or two of them.  Not good.

6. Did you learn something about the discipline that you didn’t know before? (like base cellos are really big instruments)

Some of the pictures were collages and shapes made up the images.  I liked this because for me I don’t draw very well and knowing that I can use shapes to make art.

7. Did you feel respect for the artist as separate from his or her work?

Yes, I have gained great respect for these artists.  Their sense of adventure and playfulness really impressed me.

# 6 ART EVENT: It’s Pan Time!!

ART EVENT: It’s Pan Time!!

    CSUSM hosted a concert in Arts 111 called “It’s Pan Time!!”  It was students from all age who study at a school in Carlsbad learning how to play the steel drum.  They played mostly original scores by their instructor, but the ages 7- 12 played Cold Plays “Paradise” It was a two hour concert with an hour video presentation.

  1. Title: “It’s Pan Time” date: November 19, 2013, and nature of the event: Concert
  1. What did you come away with from the event? (What will you will remember about it?) What I came away with from this event is you do not need to know a stich of music to play the steel drum.  There are many people in the world that wish to play an instrument.  Many never do because the fear of learning to read music. With this instrument, it’s all taught by the instructor.  Every note is showed to the student one note at a time.  The only thing the student has to do is know how to memorize.
  2. Was there something specific in the work that could affect/influence your own work?

Yes, I think I will start to write my music down more.  The whole time I was watching and listening to the concert I kept thinking, if they just wrote the music down and taught the students to read music it would be so much easier.

4.   Did you discover anything that might change the way you look/think/feel about something? I think I will start to practice my piano more often.  I leave it for weeks without ever practicing.  Practice is necessary to keep me playing well.

5. Was there any flaw in the event that you found noteworthy and can intelligently criticize? (not just, “It sucked!”)

The only flaw was the video presentation part.  It could be a little shorter without taking away anything from the message.

  1. Did you learn something about the discipline that you didn’t know before? (like base cellos are really big instruments) I didn’t know that the player of the steel drum was taught by memory and that there are keys on the drums.
  1. Did you feel respect for the artist as separate from his or her work?

I felt great respect for the performers and the instructor.  It is a lot of hard work to learn a musical instrument, but to teach without notes, makes it 100 times harder.
