For our third lesson we had a lecture on "1900-1910 Expressionism and Futurism" it went well however I am going to look at the lecture online again. We then got to do research on the laptops about our artist "Henri Matisse" research went well however, after feedback when we had our group tutorials I have found other avenues to go down.  I like the groups ideas and artists.

For week 7 we had a double lecture on 1930-1940: British Surrealist Group- Photo Journalism 1940-1950: St Ives School - Abstract Expressionism and we then worked on our scripts for the rest of the lesson. I struggled with starting it properly and trying to make it critical!

For week 6 we did not have a lecture so we carried on research we got given an Academic Writing Presentation posted on Moodle for us to look at. Which showed us different ways we could write our scripts. I finally chose my second person which turned out to be a Smurf. I then had a talk with Stacey one of our tutors to tell her my ideas and got her feedback on what to look and research a bit further.

For week 5 we had a lecture on 1920-1930: Surrealism, New Objectivity, Bauhaus. i found this lecture interesting as I loved the Surrealism, Advertising and Pablo Picasso works because I like how his works are abstract. We then went onto work on our research and scripts for the rest of the lesson.

For week 4 continued  After the lecture we went onto do a dating game which consisted of being our artists and thinking of one or more questions to ask the other people in our group this was to get us thinking about our artist and to see how much we know about them. This was a good game that I really enjoyed and I showed myself how much I know about Henri Matisse. We then went onto talk about our second artists or ideas about a second person as a group.

For week 4 of the course we had a lecture on 1910-1920: Constructivism, Dada, Bauhaus, Destul. The lecture was very interesting as we looked at different famous works and found out Graphic Design didn't exist properly until the 70's which was very surprising. We looked Tim Burton and the German Expressionism and how he was inspired. We looked at the development through the years and the different designers.

For our second lesson we had our first lecture on 1900- post Impressionism- art nouveau- symbolism." I was a bit overwhelmed at first because it is about art and design history and where it all started but I was ok. We then took it in turns to tell the tutors and group what we found out and got feedback.

For our lessons we are split into afternoon and morning groups. My first lesson consisted of the tutors explaining the course overview and design briefs. We looked at "A contextual journey through time"  this showed me all different artist/ designers and the most important art movements of the periods and how they influence the communication process. We then got to pick out an artist from a pot, I got Henri Matisse. I then went on to research him for next week.

This is "Pablo Picasso- bust of a woman" I like this design as it's abstract I think this is why I picked it because it is a portrait that's humorous and doesn't has to be precise and perfect. The colours complement each other and the green colour of the bust stands out the most.

This is a photo of " Lee Ufan- from line 1978 oil paint and glue on canvus" I loved this painting because it literally pulled me in due to the vivid bright blue used at the top of the design. It's how the blue decreases to White it got me thinking how the artist done that then when I read the detail of the painting next to it it told me they had used a mixture of paint and glue. It works excellent together.

This is "Leon Golub- Vietnam 2 1973 acrylic on linen." I didn't like this work because it was completely terrible and terrifying that it shows a young child in the middle of a war zone. On further viewing it does recognise the impact and terror young children go through on a daily basis. The impact of using greens, blacks, whites and browns show the link between the characters and the idea of the piece.

For our second lesson we went to the Tate Modern Museum. My day started off a bit hectic as we missed the turning for the Tate so had to drive round the one way system. I got dropped off at the Tate so I met in the meeting place we did our two morning activities which was to draw negative spaces in objects and to document a journey in some way.

This is a photo of two sculptures I have captured at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I like the size of the sculptures and the details entailed within the designs.

This is my sketch of a pottery piece from the Victoria and Albert Museum. I loved this piece overall, from the museum pieces I saw on my trip because it automatically grabbed my attention. The use of cardboard in the design is creative and imaginative. The bottom element of the design was shaped in a curve which got me thinking of questions about the design. I think my sketch doesn't capture the bottom curves properly and if I did this again I would think of using different materials and…

This is a photo I have captured at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I loved this piece as it has different colours on each piece of the design. The colours are vivid and retro.

This is my sketch of a sculptured head from the Victoria and Albert Museum. This sketch has worked out ok, however, if I did this sketch again I would reconsider my size, experimentation of colour and media.

This is a photo I have captured at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I like the composition of the candle stick because the top of the candle stick reminds me of branches coming of a tree and the bottom of the stick reminds me of roots.

This is my sketch of a statue from the Victoria and Albert Museum. I believe this is a good sketch because I have thought about the sizing of my sketch and by using pencil as my only media I have been able to show different tones within my sketch.

This is a photo of a table from the Victoria and Albert Museum I have captured. I love the table because of the use of light and dark throughout the design they complement each other making the pattern on the table stand out to the viewer.

This is my sketch of a pottery piece from the Victoria and Albert Museum. This sketch has worked out well as I have been able to capture the flowing detail entailed around the centre. The richness of the golden colour captured my eye.

This is a photo I have captured at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I like how the work has a combination of mechanical and environmental aspects.
