For community outreach, I decided to target those who at my high school would be my target audience or the people for who I'm creating this palette. Two of them are pictured above. Anna (left) and Anastasia (right) are enrolled with me in AP art and among other artists helped me conduct an experiment, product feedback, and participated in a survey about the problems modern mixing it attacking.
If you would like to know more about the community outreach experience you can check my blog post named "Community Testing" where I performed the experiment and you can check the post named "Which Method is Better" in order to see the feedback given from the experiment participants.
Below I have linked by survey analysis/results, my experiment analysis, and an infographic on how to use Modern Mixing's Palette.
Connections Throughout The Academy
Here you will find a reflection of my past years in the academy, what skills I've learned, and how I've applied them to my solo capstone project Modern Mixing.
My learning stretch is turning something artistic into something STEM-related. For example, the process of paint mixing is not something that is thoroughly researched or found in scholarly articles and databases. But being innovative I branched out and search for things like color theory, and the chemical bases of different paints. Widening my search of ideas let me broaden my range of ideas while still relating them back to my original project and search ideas.
Time Management Plan
Using a monthly calendar of expo season the attached document showcases my time, how I planned it, what I accomplished, and how I utilized classroom time to my advantage!
Passion is very evident in my project. As an artist, I have to be passionate about my work and what I create. This can be hard to do especially when you have tools that aren't working up to your standards or cooperating with your art process. This is where my project comes in. Modern Mixing is based on improving a widely used pallet that has not had any improvements since it was created. Even though a pallet is very versatile I believe I can make it better. As an artist myself I have a special tie to this modern mixing because my project can eventually be something that I use for my paintings when I go away to art school in the fall, as well as my friends who have the same plans. For more examples of how I have grown in character and demonstrated valuable skills, please check out my blog posts and tags! My blog posts can be found under the posts tab and the tags can be found at the bottom of each blog post!
Here you will find my list of materials needed to create my pallet insert prototype.
And you will also find the project value template that lists certain jobs and materials that can be utilized and applied to Modern Mixing.
