Coal production started the Industrial Revolution. This is because the coal was used to make steam. The steam was used to power the trains and the trains transported goods. Another reason I think that coal production was what caused the Industrial Revolution is that the coal fuelled the furnaces and the furnaces melted the iron. The Iron was used to make trains and the iron was also used to make machines for the industrial production. The machines were also used to farm for the agricultural production. This is why I think that coal production was what caused the Industrial Revolution.
Designing our project was really smooth and everyone could share their own opinion. We made our project something that everyone could relate to.
I liked working with my group because everyone was funny and we worked well.
Some ATL skills I used well were communication and thinking. I think I communicated well because I could share my idea and was able to listen other people’s ideas too. I think I thought well was because as a group we had to think on how we can find alternatives for not using electronic devices.
One great moment along the way was when we were competing on whose pinterest logo was the best.
One thing I learned from the other group was how littering garbage kills whales and penguins.
Next time I will try to be more focused and will be able to do more work.
Something awesome that I contributed was the play dough making I did when I created the logos for social media.
In art class we had to draw somebody but in their drawing express something about them
The person I chose was Kensuke. Kensuke is a friend that has a hobby of watching movies. I chose Kensuke because he was sitting next to me. He is important because he is my friend. I expressed his love of movies because it is a hobby of his to watch them.
The elements I used was colour, clothes and setting. I used colours like red and black because it shows his brave personality. I changed his clothes and settings to make him look like he is in the lord of the rings because of his love of movies and his love of the lord of the rings. I used the lord of the rings as my influence because Kensuke likes the lord of the rings. The artist style that influenced me the most was Hergé because he wrote the tin tin books out of his own experiences. I decided to use his style because I am drawing Kensuke, who is in my life.
In art we carved rubber plates to create a printing block. We used the to print patterns and how patterns interlock.
I think I did well on choosing the colours to print on. I chose white to give a ghost like feel. I chose green and purple for a poisonous feel. I think that I could have improved my carving. I should have carved the negative space instead of the positive space. I should have also made sure that the plates actually interlocked properly. I also wasn’t as precise as I could have been. If I could redo this unit I would make my design even more simple.
The biggest problem for me was choosing my design. I first thought about creating a star wars based motif but I could not make my mind. After that I thought of creating a superhero based motif. I ended up with a Harry Potter based motif. The way I solved this problem was to think about alternate designs.
I think I did well on collaborating my personal interest with my cultural influence. My cultural influence was the Japanese wave pattern which I put on the corners. My personal interest was Harry Potter. I chose this because at that time I was rereading the Harry Potter series.
I used many basic shapes in my motif. I used a couple of circles and a few stars. I used some uniques shapes too like a moon like shape and a diamond like shape. I used green and purple for four of the motifs. I used those colours because I thought they felt poisonous. I used white and black for my other five motifs because I thought that if I put the right amount of paint on I could get a ghost like mysterious feel. I created a pattern using the order of different coloured motifs by making the corners purple and green and the cross in the middle white and black. My art work interlocked by I thought that if I had more time I could have made them line up even more.
A sword represents internal and external conflict.
When we see someone carry a sword we think of that person needing to protect themselves. We also think of danger. When we see someone not carrying a sword it reminds us of not having the need to protect themselves and a feeling of safeness.
There is man vs. man conflict where people fight people using swords. Then I realised that a sword could mean internal conflict too. It could mean insecurity or having a need too protect themselves from other things. If they don’t have the need to have a sword it means they have a certain feel of safeness. This could mean that a sword represents conflict.
