I was looking into todays conflicts around the world and none of them interested me. I wanted to make a project that effects me on the world problems. I wanted to do something about my home country, Egypt. I decided to make a project involving the revolutions that have been going on for the past 4 years.
The past revolution put us back to the start if everything we had accomplished from the previous revolutions because it was for bad reasons. I decided to have a meaning behind a troubled man.
First i would have the man breaking through a wall as if he had been trying to get through it for a long time. Secondly, while he is half out i want him to have face planted into a long pole as of he had been surprised of the outcome.
I don't exactly want the art to be on paper since i want the wall to show and the mall running into the pole look 3-D so i am thinking of having the art be in clay:D
This project has a deep meaning behind it. Hopefully it all goes as planned:)

My team decided to do a project with landscape. I am in a group with Jessica, Chassity, Hannah, Ariel, and Rachel. We are gonna do stripes of different lands. Egypt, Alaska, and Florida. We were gonna add Nc with the lighthouse but we decided to put that one with florida.
A solution i could have tried out to make the project turn out better was to wait until the paint had melted and then melt some more because the colors would blend and turn out brown:( which was not what i wanted but i fixed it. The reason why i kept the background white abd made the tree bark plain brown was so that the melted crayons would stand out and the focus would be on them.

I decided to do something different than most crayon used project. I decided to use the showing of time through two way: a tree growing, and a crayon melting. I developed this idea throud crayons. I needed a way to show crayons growing over time so i used a tree :)

- try new things
Did you try something that you weren’t sure about as part of this project?
Did you pick a material or technique that was new or different over something that was familiar?
I have never done anything cartoon-like, or comedy before in one of my arts so that was defiantly risk taking since though I might not come together on not well planned. I tried doing the window in the apple and I felt like it would take away the art from the actual work or it would distract it. I wasn't very sure about doing the rays of light coming out of the laptop but it came togethrer. maybe not like how id hoped but it still looks nice.
I stepped back and looked at my art work when i had painted the apple and laptop i wanted to see if it was well put.
I liked my work and my progress until i started doin it a little sloppy.
2. The techniques i used was water color. I used it sometimes without the water to give it a contrastin color.
