Personal Aesthetics Project

Aww it's our last six weeks together in NuWorks:(
This last six weeks we are focusing on our personal aesthetics, like what inspires us, who we look up to, who or what motivates and drives us everyday, etc. Each individual in the class is to create a video displaying all of our personal aesthetics. For years, I've had this loving passion for makeup, art, cosmetics, and fashion. So in my video, i am including designs from some of my favorite designers such as: Betsey Johnson, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Coco Chanel, and others. I'm also including work from inspiring makeup artists like :Bobbi Brown, Keyvn Aucoin, and M.A.C. In my video i will display quotes regarding all aspects of beauty and fashion, and i will probably narrate how makeup and fashion effect my life. Throughout my video i will have photographs of my own work :)
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."-Coco Chanel

Texture and Color !

Well well, i have decided to step outside of my comfort zone and step into the world of documenting and editing. For this six weeks project in NuWorks we are to create a video focusing on all aspects of texture and color. However, i decided to do the special project in which we have to document what goes on in each of the five classes, and put a video together using our favorite clips. I've had a very interesting time experiencing each students art work and getting their input on how they feel about our focus of texture and color. I really hope my video turns out successful and my NuWorks classmates' enjoy it  :)

What Booker T. Means to Me

I have come to an understanding that everyone has a different perspective about Booker T. Washington. I have been here since I was a freshman(now i am a junior) and I still idolize the school.In Nu Works, we have been given the task to produce a multimedia production describing what Booker T. means to us.My friend Ayalah and I decided to utilize our talents that we do outside of school, and bring them to life in our production using stop motion. I am an aspiring make up artist and Ayalah does very well with baking deserts. Ayalah will act as my model, and i will do make up on her displaying the different clusters Booker T. offers using the school colors and other pigments to add extra sparkle! Ayalah will use her cake baking skills to make two different cakes with four different flavors which will include: Music, Dance, Theater, and Visual Arts. We are very excited about this project and we hope the guests attending the Arts Gala will enjoy watching the productions.

Out with the old and In with the new.

A fresh new start.
A new beginning,I'm the same girl but with a new attitude toward things. I have left all of the sorrow and negativity in the past, and I'm ready to bring in the happiness and joy into my life. I've learned that I have so much to live for and I am thriving to achieve my goals that I have set for myself this year !

Nu-Works has allowed me to learn more about myself that I never knew before.I've been able to utilize my creativity and interact with other talent in the class.

"The circle of life is a cycle which revolves around a new change."-Giavonna Briscoe
Many aspects of life contain changes,circles,or cycles,for an exmaple:the color wheel,cirlce of fifths,the Earth's orbit around the Sun,the season changes,etc.

The known and unknown parts of life all contain circles whether we are aware of them.
