For Spanish, we worked on translating a Mexican/Spanish dish into Spanish, and recreating the food in a video by using 10 steps. I decided on making watermelon mint popsicles, and filmed my recipe as soon as the project had begun. It was fun experience, making the food and writing the recipe in Spanish, and very informational for those who choose to learn how to make the dish, and myself for putting in the effort in learning new vocabulary.
La vida de brody - el proyecto de my frida
In Spanish 2, we read a biography and movie about Frida Kahlo. Like any other class, we were quizzed to test out knowledge attained from the story of Frida, and the new vocabulary we learned along the way. We all were then given a project to write our own biographies of people in our lives (deceased) and provide a visual art piece that reflected an art piece or element from one of Frida Kahlo's artwork.
I started my project off with writing my biography about my dog, Brody, and events and information that I thought were important and interesting from his life. From there, I also began to paint a portrait of my dog using a photo reference, while doing my best to portray a few of Frida's own elements from her portrait painting of her sister, Cristina.
Overall, this project was a lot more fun than I expected it had been. As most projects that are carried out artistically, as a student you're not given much off an option to paint/draw anything other than what you learned. However, in this class we were all able to paint and write about people that we saw important, just as how the world saw Frida. I personally enjoyed that I was given the option to paint an animal, instead of a person, which made this project more impactful for me and my family.
In Spanish 2, we wrote 'Calaveras.' The point of it was to choose a person, and poke fun at the deads (livings) hypocritical actions and words. Calaveras are very popular and common during the celebration of Dia de los Muertos in Mexico. For my calavera, I chose to write about Donald Trump. I decided this based on not only his very hypocritical behavior and actions, but also because he's not even half of being as decent person. I made 'fun' of his terrible tan, his plan for building a way, and the size of his hands. This small project was interesting, as I'd never made anything like this before, but overall, I enjoyed it, especially my art piece.
