In this project we cooked a traditional food from a latin place. Me and my partner Kaylee decided to make churros, a traditional dessert in Spain. When we expecting it to take like 4 hours to make these but they actually took about 2 and its something I will definitely make again in the future. I really enjoyed this project because we got to make something outside of school and it was really cool to incorporate a video into spanish as well. It was very interesting and Im glad that we got to do it.
El Proyecto de Frida : Desmond richardson
In this project we started of with learning everything about Frida Kahlo. We first red a book about her that explained everything in her life and even her family before that. After we read about Frida we watched a movie that explained more of her grown up life and the struggles and hardships she went through to get to where she is today. In the Mi Frida project we had to choose someone that was a inspiring as Frida is and someone who went through hardships as well. I choose Desmond Richardson. Desmond Richardson is a dancer who became one on the most well known dancers ever. He was the first african american dancer at his company that he joined and went on to do many great things like, perform in Broadway show, choreograph for the oscars and create a new company for other dancers. I think that Desmond and Frida are very similar because they were both the firsts in their career and they both did something special with it. In the end of the project I was very proud of the artwork and biography I wrote but I think that it could definitely be refined. I really liked this project because it showed us the life of an influential artist who made a living with what she loved to do. I think this project would definitely be better if we had more time on the painting aspect of things but overall I would say it was a success.
This project was really about making fun of what people do everyday and putting that into a poem. With these, you use the skeletons to interpret what you are saying in your poem. In this project we created characters from our imagination or people that already exist. My Calavera is depicting mountain bike riders who think they are really good. I tried to re-create the "stereotypical" racer who thinks they are way better than everyone else. I liked this project but I think it was a little bit rushed. In the future it would have been cool to see the history of them and also look at some peoples. Overall it was pretty interesting.
