For my lyrical tape painting I choose changes by Tupac because it gave me the most visuals when I heard it. The lyrics in this song explain how blacks are targeted and misrepresented as drug dealers, criminals, etc.
1. How and why is art used as a vehicle for communication?
a. Culture affects self-expression whether we realize it
Art is a way of expressing emotions and even showing a message, everyone will get a different message and meaning.
2. How can emotion be shared artistically?
During this project we had to create an India ink painting while practicing value and a different variety of brush strokes and sizes.
Value: the lightness or darkness of a color or shade. Contrast: the degree of difference between tones.
Composition: the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole.
Wash: a thinned down-mostly water-usage of paint
