I think Fun Theory is the ability to change the look of something boring to something fun to catch people's attention to have more interest in. Fun Theory is taking an idea of an original and putting some fun into it to make it more noticeable for people to see the fun in it. A process that is mundane and boring that I would like to redesign is maybe the stop sign because lots of people like to ignore the fact that it is there to tell you to stop and look around to make sure people are not walking in the street and to watch what you doing. I want the sign to have a message in electronic form saying things to get their attention. Or make a robots that pretends to get hit by that car that doesn't stop. I would also like to redesign sidewalks, I want to put blocks that light up when you step on it like the Michael Jackson billie Jean video when he steps on each side walk and it lights up but I want these to have some sort of gif after you get to the end of the sidewalk when approaching the street. When you reach the end of the sidewalk the sidewalks will light up in different colors all types of words on them in different languages.
Getting out of your comfort zone and showing people what and how you got your ideas. Phil Hansen asked people to share their stories and he used their words to create an artwork. This means any idea that you have can be turned into art work, you can turn something small into something big. At the beginning of the video he talked about his shaky hands and him taking to someone about it, their opinion was embrace the shake, Embrace the Shake is basically Phil was nervous while painting and drawing so he took that and he turned fear into art work. I thought this video was helpful to others who loved art but thought it was not helping them improve and all the different types of things he has encountered to help him paint and draw even though he broke a bone he had fun and his work became really inspiring. During the video he mentioned him leaving art class because it was not working but later in his years he did art again and he didn't have certain tool so he used his hands and other materials he found or"stole" he used people stories to make a facial feature which he spent 6 days in his living room finishing his work. He concentrated on what he said he could not do and it turned out that he could he just didn't want to do it.

A) Their is no right or wrong answer in doing art. You explore things and make it your own.
B) Beginners feel like they can't be as perfect as a artist, truth is artist aren't perfect either they make mistakes all the time.
C) Do the hardest piece you know until you finally succeed in making it original.
D) A pro justifies their work from ideas and inspiration from others and making it one of a kin.
During this project I didn't know what to do so while I was thinking of what to do I remembered in my first class how the teachers came up with a word to describe VMCCA and it ended up being "VM Strong" so what I did was I got an extra pumpkin I painted it with 2 dark and light colors and wrote VM Strong on it and had words to describe it. Believe- means to believe in the school and what we can do. Trust- Have trust in the teachers and the people working on the school. etc.
See if you look at thins pumpkin you would know i didn't know what to do but the top of it was something random I guess it was to describe how high birds fly, it was to represent how far we have gotten before we changed the way we do things meaning we are doing a good job in showing people how strong Vernon Malone is and how we get through things even though it will be a whole.
Ok so this pumpkin was to indicate my favorite boy band, it wasn't suppose to be evil, funny,cute or anything else it was just something that I like and what popped in my head at the moment. The sign the says 1D was made from plastic, I cut it out and traced the sign and for it to get hard you have to staple it so that it has a hole for the heat. After that I put some of the things I made in the oven and microwave, the temperature has to be at least 283 degrees because during the process in looks like it is crumbling up but it get's smaller. I used multiple colors while coloring the letters one direction in because those colors represents the colors each member likes . If you look closely at the 1D sign you can see that staple still in there, what you don't want to do is leave it like I did you want to staple it it then take it out before you heat it at 283 degrees, you just want it the heat to vent it.
While doing this project I experience some mistakes that I made but was to lazy to fix because of time etc. The piece that I am doing with the orange hart with the smaller bluish orangish heart blow i guess indicates love or what ever it makes you think. My work is not about how I see it but how others view it as because one artist work is another's person's meaning/ joy. If you cant tell my work is smudged like you can see my finger prints with chalk with is a very good mixing tool i would use4 more often since oil pastels are hard to blend or mix and I find it very helpful when your trying to blend in two or more colors to get the right sightings.
