Refer to The Path to Writing a Professional Document within Blackboard for crucial tips to improve your documents.SITE ANALYSIS/LITERATURE REVIEW/RESEARCH DOCUMENTClosely examine the border area using Google Mas/Earth. Choose a specific city or rural town within 50 miles of the Mexico/US Border. What are their problematic issues? Research the specific sites demographics using the census report (Mexican and US Census reports- links provided in the syllabus). Use other reputable sources, such as local newspapers and regional reports to discover history and problematic issues those communities are dealing with such as high unemployment, hate crimes, pollution, drugs/alcohol, forest fires, lack of water, endangered species, etc… Your research will summarize the historical and modern issues while considering demographics, the local economy, and geographic features. Research the specific sites demographics using the census report (Mexican and US Census reports- links provided in the syllabus). Within the conclusion, demonstrate critical thought by showing that you have examined the area and its problems in detail by discussing possible solutions to the biggest problems. Last, talk about the next steps of the research by stating the specific problem you will concentrate on solving with your final design project.This research activity is designed for the students to take their knowledge from the readings, class and guest lectures, videos and personal interest and apply background research to a meaningful design project which personally interests them. The student will consider present surroundings, natural geographic features, historical events/issues, population trends, social /environmental characteristics, current issues and future projections of the Mexico/US Border Region. This research/site analysis will form the basis of knowledge for the final design project.Include maps of the area and images which relate to the site and research. Use the maps and images within the body of your document to support the written discussion. Include extra and important images within an appendix.For an APA example of a proper literature review, please refer to the instructors thesis on pages 4-16 and the reference page on page 88. The thesis is posted in Blackboard. APA format w/citations in body of paper 4-page minimum (cover page, outline, reference and appendixes do not count towards your 4 written pages) Professional Cover page (image relating to theme with good text layout) Formal Outline using APA format. Describe the history of the site in detail. What is the sites significance to the Mexico/US Border region? What are the demographics? What are historical issues of the specific site? What is the natural environment like around the specific site? What is the current situation/news from the chosen site and its surrounding area? Minimum 10 reputable sources (government websites, local newspapers, scholarly articles, etc ) Reference page- APA format, list sources in alphabetical order according to the authors last name. Include maps and images within the body and appendix to support the written discussions. Use spell-check, re-read your drafts out loud and exchange with other students in class for editing purposes before submitting your final draft. Quality counts!

1. Use the signup sheet in eLearning to connect with a group. Each group will have communication tools and a file exchange. You may choose instead to work with some other social media platform to collaborate. You will only be graded on the completed project.2. Select 3-4 different locations (For example: Ancient Greece, India, South America) and examine what art/architecture was produced in each place at approximately the same time. You can select cultures/locations from anytime between ca. 3,000 BCE- ca. 1900 CE. Pick at least two works for each culture. You may use works that are in the book, but you should also do some research and also include works that are not in the book. You may choose to seek out works that relate to a particular theme.You may download and use images from the Metropolitan Museums website:https://www.metmuseum.org/toah/chronology/LINK HAS BEEN FIXED.3. Assemble the works chronologically using Google Jamboard. Add as many pages as you need. Caption each image with artist, title, date, location (if architecture) or place of origin for other works. Use the textbooks captions as a guide.4. Write a brief description of each work. The description may relate to technique, visual composition, or cultural significance.For example: The Doryphoros uses contrapposto to give this figure a more natural stance that earlier Greek statues. The sculptor, Polykleitos, depicts the figure with weight placed on his right leg, leaving the left side of the body relaxed.5. Define key vocabulary terms related to the selected works. For example: An oculus is an architectural feature formed by an opening in the center of a dome.6. Try to keep your timeline within a 500-1,00 year span. Include other historical events that happen within your time span. This may be major wars; scientific discoveries; key inventions; spread of certain philosophies; etc. The events can be related to the regions you are working with or events that have global significance (For example: Gunpowder was invented in China in 904 CE.).7. Everything needs to be in the correct chronological order (oldest to most recent). All material should be neatly organized, readable and use correct spelling and grammar.Each group will produce one collaborative timeline.8. Each group member must contribute the following:1. 4 images2. 3 vocabulary terms3. 2 historical events4. look at the attachment and do the same

This journal is a little different. We have now studied several different artistic media, so we’ll combine it all together.What I’d like each of you to do is look through ECU’s “Love” show – up online at this link:https://ecok.libguides.com/TheLoveShow/2021Then we will do some curatorial work – meaning, evaluating the show and an individual work within it for a series of class awards we give out.In your journal entry please choose one work and come up with an award for it. We’ll share the most thoughtful awards with the artists. Here is what you award submission should include:1. Title of the award. (examples: “Best Drawing Award”, “Most Innovative Use of Linear Perspective”, “Form and Content” award, or make up your own.)2. Title of piece and name of artist you are choosing for the award3. Explain in about a sentence what the award means (artists may not all know what linear perspective is, for example)4. Explain in about a sentence why the piece you chose has, in your mind, earned the award. What about it stands out and why? You can think of this as a visual analysis as well. Consider that the artist will learn something new from your interpretation of the work, so this is your chance to share knowledge from the class with them. Many of these artists have not taken the Art in Life course.This is a 200 words assignment only .Please write in 1 or 2 paragraph maximum.
1.Trying an art processUse only red, yellow and blue mark making tools. (Can be crayon, marker, highlighter, colored pencil, paint, whatever you have on hand). Choose an object around the house which includes green, orange, and/or purple. Using pointillism (aka only dots), try your best to “mix” colors by interspersing different colors and proportions of dots. You should be able to get a range of hues (colors) and values (lights and darks)! Ie a yellow-orange will have a higher proportion of yellow dots than red. If light is hitting it, try spacing your dots further apart. If it is in shadow, space your dots closer together. You may want to add more blue dots to “darken it” in the areas of deepest shadow. Have fun with this – remember it’s not a studio class so the result does not need to be perfect! The point is to better understand the pre-Modern art movement’s play with light and optics by trying it yourself. I will be able to tell if you spent some good time and effort on it. Here is one example: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.crayola.com%2F-%2Fmedia%2FCrayola%2FLesson-Plans%2Flesson_plans%2F1317.jpg%3Fmh%3D762%26mw%3D645&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.crayola.com%2Flesson-plans%2Fpointillism-lesson-plan%2F&tbnid=LHUwVPkGAB3kOM&vet=12ahUKEwib07qK7efvAhVDK6wKHR9rBn4QMygQegUIARCBAg..i&docid=jeV_xkJ9UdfgiM&w=594&h=762&q=pointillism&ved=2ahUKEwib07qK7efvAhVDK6wKHR9rBn4QMygQegUIARCBAg2. Let’s do another hands-on practice here.First, look at these “Cubist Still Life” images by Roy Lichtenstein. What objects is he depicting? How many angles are we seeing those objects from? How does he break up the picture plane?https://www.artimage.org.uk/25798/roy-lichtenstein/cubist-still-life-with-lemons–1975https://www.nga.gov/collection/art-object-page.62528.htmlNow, make your own. Remember, this is not a studio class so you won’t be graded on making “excellent” art. The idea is to try some of the art techniques – in this case combining multiple viewpoints in one drawing. Show me you put in time and effort. The result does not need to be perfect. Trust me I will know if you put in time and effort.Choose a set of ~3 objects in your own space which exemplify this Pandemic year to you.Arrange them in space together. Think about the background -you could lay them on a draped and bunched cloth on a table, or arrange them in a windowsill, etc.Now set up a workspace with some paper, and use pencil, pen and ink, charcoal, paint, marker, makeup, whatever mark-making tools you have around the house. Don’t buy extra supplies for this. Well you can if you want, but you don’t need to. Ask me if you have trouble or need ideas, we can come up with a plan together.Use a ruler to make at least 3 lines which divide the paper. The lines can be vertical, horizonal, or diagonal. Or some combination.In each space that is left, draw the still life you arranged from a different point of view. So you can fill up 1/3 of your paper by drawing the still life from the left side, then move to the centerand fill up another 1/3, then move further to the right and fill up the last part of the page.Upload photo(s) of your drawing. Add a quick reflection on your process. What was it like drawing the same object from multiple angles? Did the final composition make sense? How does it help you understand Cubism in a different way? How does this compare to the linear perspective process you tried a few weeks ago?
