2nd Quarter Artist statement Tyler Creighton

The second quarter wasn't quite the same as the first. The art is beginning to expand in different ways and forms of art. It changed from a simple drawing and shading to paintings, sculptures (by choice) and photography. Starting the quarter off we drew a large version of our clear object that had a shade and a shadow. We did this in the last quarter so it wasn't very complicated.The more advanced projected that we progressed to were bicycle drawing, sculpture, and our 200 photographs project.  

What i enjoyed the most was doing the photo project and editing 5 of them. We took 200 photos and picked five of them that stood out to us then edit them. After that, we went into photoshop and edited the pictures anyway we wanted to.I had fun feeling like I was a photographer and snapping photos of something that was still or moving objects.

Below, I have posted the main pieces of art I did this quarter. In order from top to bottom:
Large Clear Object
Bike
Sculpture
Five Edited Photos That are edited and stood out to me 
I look forward to doing the projects for next quarter.

Lobbying Post #4

Since researching the internet as well as calling around didn't do much I would plan to physically visit to get the information I need. Along with visiting I would have a letter or proposal saying exactly what my issues and concerns are. However this will not be enough because I am only one person I have thought of starting a petition of some sort and getting people of philadelphia to sign and share their thoughts and concerns so they can see how much it is affecting the people of Philadelphia. With this I should be able to at least get an answer as to why It is not paid much attention or why they aren't willing to give it that much time of day.

Lobbying Post #3

After more research and actually calling around I was not able to find anyone who showed support or much interest in my issue, because of this there is not much media attention or even people opposing except for the people who issue restraining orders and are used to it. Simply because that is the system and has been for a while so It does not need change.They have much power because there are not many voices yelling out to change it their theory and opinion on the subject will have more power.

Lobbying Post #2

In research it was very difficult finding Public officials that paid this issue much attention in the city of Philadelphia. Also I was not able to find information on how he has voted on this issue. This topic seems to be swept under the rug , not much of a concern.

Lobbying Post #1.

I am lobbying to change the way the process of restraining orders are handled and who has access and rights to them. The motivation behind this comes from a personal experience of not only being stalked but threatened and being overwhelmed with just wanting freedom and peace from the situation. However Iw as told I couldn't do anything about it and that a restraining order was not available for my situation.The main supporters of my Idea so far are only other citizens who have gone through a similar situation.The main opponents of the idea are basically everyone who issues them and is comfortable with the law of restraining orders.From researching I have yet to  find any pending legislation on this topic or issue . I would love to see a piece of legislation declaring that If someone has been threatened or stalked and  can prove so they should have legal freedom from having to see or deal with the person . For example if the person is following  you and you can prove it , then go to the police the person should suffer sentencing or if anything a fine.

I couldn't get the Audio to work in the flv.

Primero, yo me despierto en mi cama a las 6:00.


Después, yo me ducho con jabón y champú.


Entonces, yo me seco, con la toalla.


En cuatro, yo me pono, con vaqueros azul, la camisa , botas negro, y cinturón negro.


Entonces, Yo cepillo de dientes.


Entonces, Yo me desperto mi hermano.


Finale, Yo voy a la escuela.

EduCon 2.4 a Huge Success!

To the parents and students and teachers of SLA:

This weekend, Science Leadership Academy hosted EduCon 2.4 - a national education conference exploring the intersection of progressive educational philosophy and 21st Century tools. Over 500 educators from more than 40 states and six different countries came to SLA to learn with us. By all accounts the conference was an incredible success, both from a philosophical standpoint and a financial one - as the conference raised over $50,000 to kick off this year's laptop fundraising. The conference was run completely by student, parent, teacher and administrator volunteers, and we could not have done it without them. Thank you to all the students and parents and teachers who gave freely of their time and energy. We heard over and over again from hundreds of conference participants how incredible this community is and how amazing our students and parents are. Thank you all for the work you do and for being an incredible example to the world of what a school can achieve together.

Trader Joe's Poem

Tomato Pizcadores/ Tomato Pickers

 

 

The sun beats down on us like an overseer towards its slave.

Relentless and cruel we still work under its wrath,

Some days with little water or food,

Other days with nothing but the tomatoes, buckets, earth, sky, sun and us.

We work for little pay and long hours,

Only for them to charge people more than our labor.

We could quit,

But that would run the risk of our families

And that’s too great of a risk.

For some of us would rather die in the fields then let our families starve.

Only if the people knew about this,

It would still help.

 

 

La sol golpea abajo en nosotros semejante un sustantivo su esclavo.

Implacable y brutal nostoros todavia trabaja debajo su ira,

Algunos dios con pequeño agua o comida,

Otro dios con nunca pero los tomoatos, cubos, tierra, cielo, sol y nosotros.

Nosotros trabajo para paga pequeño y largo horas,

Sólo para ellos a cargo personas mas de nuestro trabaja.

Nosotros podría deja,

Pero entonces nosotros podría corre el riesgo de nuestro familias.

Y el riesgo es muy grande.

Para algunos de moremos antes mira sus familia morir de hambre.

Sólo si la personas sabieron sobre este,

Usted ayudá.

Daily Routine: Roger Bracy

This assignment was about your daily routine from when you wake up in the morning to when you good to school. Describing each step you did in spanish. Conjugating verbs, and knowing your vocabulary is important for this. Overall this project gave me insight on how to use verbs in Spanish, and how it easily helps me explain my times in my life.
