Week 15 Art Experience – Finger Painting

Here we are, our last week in ART 110. Time has really flown by. Our final Art Experience was Finger Painting! I don’t think I’ve finger painted since I was in elementary school, so this was definitely a blast from the past. Speaking of blast, I gotta admit, I had a blast doing this project. I…

Week 9 Art Experience – Art Care Package

On October 21, 1991, my parents, Jim and Kristi Tomasello, got married, and last Friday, they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. Getting to celebrate this milestone with my parents was very important to me. They have both shown me so much love and support throughout my entire life, and I thought it would be nice…

Week 8 Art Experience – Sketching in the Japanese Garden

Hi guys! So this week’s class meeting was a little different. Our class got to meet in the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden on campus. I hadn’t been down there since last year for one of my classes, so it was definitely nice to go back. I think it’s pretty cool that we are able…

Week 6 Art Experience – Zines & Flip Books

Hey everyone! This week’s Art Experience was all about Zines and Flipbooks. I had heard of flipbooks before, and I used to even make some with Post-Its when I got bored in class. So I thought I’d take on something I haven’t tried before, which were the zines. When I first saw the word ‘zine’,…

Week 5 Art Experience – Graffiti Writing

Week 4 Art Experience – Automatic Drawing

What’s up, guys! We’re in Week 4 of ART 110, and this week’s Art Experience was called “Automatic Drawing”. When I first heard about this Art Experience project, I was intrigued because I felt like this was something I used to try and do when I was a kid and I was bored in class….

Week 2 Art Experience – Landscape With A Corpse

I’d like to call this one, Circle the Drain. Get it? So I found this week’s art activity to be quite creepy, obviously. I mean, posing dead for a project is something I never thought I would be doing in college! However, once I figured out an idea in my head of what I wanted…

Week 1 Art Experience – Plaster Casting

So for Week 1 in Art 110, our assignment was to do some plaster casting, and I was pretty excited to head to the beach and start. I really wanted to go on Saturday with the class so I could hang out with everybody and kind of see how their projects turned out, but I…
