In celebration of your daughter’s recent high school graduation, you are hosting a party in the backyard. The plan is to enjoy spending time with family and friends, grill some delicious food, celebrate your daughter’s accomplishment and just enjoy a little downtime. Everything is going according to plan when suddenly you hear your neighbor scream.
The school name to be Abraham Lincoln High school. It should be this because he was one of the most influential men in history, because he freed the slaves, and won the Civil War. I think the mascot should be a Bald Eagle, because it is a symbol of American freedom and democracy. It is a symbol of hope and freedom to the whole world.
The name of the painting I choose is Pie Counter. The artist who created the piece of art is Wayne Thiebaud. I chose the painting because it reminds me of when my church would serve food and desserts to the people at my church. When choosing which painting I would write about, I had three choices. I decided to choose Pie Counter, which was my first choice, because I thought it would be interesting to write about a table with some of my favorite desserts.
David Hockney has greatly contributed to the art world through his unique artistic vision. Although he is known for his strong opinions about photography, he transformed a medium he dismissed as limited. Hockney viewed photography purely as a mechanical copy. He saw the medium as not being able to express anything beyond what was photographed. Photography in Hockney’s opinion could not lead the viewer to a new form of thought as compared to a medium like painting. His criticism of the medium did not discourage him from finding different uses for photography. His accidental creation of the joiner technique created moving images. Instead of taking one shot, he would take consecutive
A couple weeks ago I was left home alone. My mom went out to Los Angeles and my brother slept over his friend's house. I went down stairs to get a glass of water. I heard the sound of the garage being opened . I gave it a second before checking to see what is was because the person who would have opened the garage should have came in already.There was no one. The garage continuously opened and closed for a good 10 minutes but eventually stopped. To this day I still don't know what or who opened the garage. This was supposed to be a nice and relaxing night by myself , but it quickly transformed into a aggravating night I do not want to have again. Transformation obviously creates fear. This can be seen in the following three stories as well. Oate’s “Where is here”,Arthur Tress’ “Dream Collector” and Julio Cortazar’s “House Taken Over” uses transformation of an ordinary person and an ordinary setting to show us how easily circumstances can change .
Black history is probably one of my favorite to learn about, so it is no surprise that I would take such joy and excitement of teaching it to children.
“Darn” I said to myself as I slowly jogged out to my spot in left field, swatting gnats and mosquitoes as I went. “If only he’d give me a chance!” I thought, “I know I can play catcher at the same level as anyone out here!” But there I was, warming up in the outfield with the center-fielder and hoping, just hoping, I’d get some action. “At least it’s a really nice evening for a game!” I thought as I turned to catch the breeze on my face. “Play ball” shouted the Umpire, as I got into a comfortable stance to watch another boring inning of “infield baseball”. Our pitcher and infield were good, too good, and thus as an outfielder I never got any action.
The title of the picture I chose was The Good Shepard. It was a picture in chapter nine with an artist that is unknown. This picture took place in about 300AD. It was founded in one of the largest catacombs in Rome, the catacombs of Domitilla. when the sculpture was founded the legs were cut off, so those were restored by the Greeks at the time, so the sculpture stands about three feet tall. With that, the sculpture is made of marble, which is one of the most used stones in Rome at that time. To me the intended audience are the people who follow him to show that he, Jesus, carries his people no matter what happens and what follows. The purpose is that he is carrying the sheep by four of its legs as if he is rescuing the sheep or protecting it, which can act as symbolism of altruistic concern.
I was in the hospital. It was June 12, 2017 at Genisys Hospital. My grandma was dead lying in the hospital bed. I was crying for hours and hours. I could not sleep thinking my grandma was dead. The very next day I had a baseball game. It was at Liberty Shores in Linden at around 6:00. I was just shocked I made it to the game and was able to play in it. But I was the first on there because I was really excited and nervous for this game. I was so nervous that I just wanted to play amazing for my grandma.
I stared in awe as I saw the glistening field. The sun was shining bright and there was a fresh breeze that filled me with all the hope a six year old could have. It was a perfect day, the kind of day that would have made Picasso paint. In my situation, this day gave me confidence, I wanted to learn more about this rollercoaster ride of emotion by the name of baseball. The sign up, the practice, the boys, the fail. Little did I know that this dirt filled field would be my life. Little did I know that I would grow to be more comfortable around boys than dramatic girls. (I have to admit that’s very hypocritical of me to say…) Little did I know that in the future I would have a fight with myself about this topic. (a.k.a. mood swings) After barely
Baseball is what many call “America’s Pastime”. It is the game that never fails to bring me from the highest highs to the lowest lows. The second that you think you are the best, the game will humble you. When you are at a loss for confidence, you will do something amazing that will turn your game around. Nothing beats the smell of the spring air, the dirty pants, the laughs with teammates and the glory of winning. There are many things that I love about the game of baseball but there’s nothing that I cherish more than the memories made and the life lessons I’ve learned through the trials that I’ve faced.
Bam, the runner hit the ball. She dropped the bat and ran to first base. Safe, she kept on running to second. As I watched her run I realize she wasn’t stopping at second, or third. Rounding third base, she sprinted to home plate. But just as she had rounded the base, the ball came sailing in to me. I caught the ball and stood my ground in front of home plate, blocking her path. She charged forward, and slid through the dirt, trying to avoid the tag, but I still got her.
After WWII Otto Dix created a piece of three men sitting down with major wounds playing a game of Skat. This Painting shows a very controversial scene of horror, light, and comical. It has a light side but, also a dark side. Finding this painting to be disturbing but also seeing what 's really going on causes many emotions between the horror and comical side of the story.
There will be two images being discussed in this essay. The first image was called “9/11/2001” by Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly. The second image was “What So Proudly We Hailed” by Carter Goodrich. The reason these images were chosen was because they have many differences, but they also have a lot in common. This essay will contain the color, date, prices, color, and what are the similarities and differences between these two images. It will also contain what the meaning of these two images is.
