Here’s a shot from #zootopia that I really enjoyed animating! The big challenge was the moving camera and composing the final frame with clarity. Also managing 10 characters and making the focus and intent of the scene clear. I did a 2d sketch pass first to find my performance and choreography, then I worked really hard to tie down that final image of the shot with all the characters. That way I could work backwards into that final pose. I then animated it stepped on 2’s/4’s before finishing my final polished version. After animation, all the other departments did amazing work. The Lighter did an incredible job to keep the viewers eye focused on the center of the screen. Great team effort!😊 Happy Friday!

When a little boy who looked frail and frightened stepped up to the sorting hat, McGonagall didn’t think much of it. She was quite glad to see him enter her house though, because she got the feeling that this little boy would surprise her one day, she just didn’t know it would be that night. 

She was called to Dumbledore’s office and was surprised to find that boy sitting across from Dumbledore. As usual, Dumbledore welcomed her and offered her a seat next to the boy. 

It was then that she was told about his condition, and saw how he had steeled himself for the reveal, and his eyes looked older than he was, filled with experiences that no child should have to endure. 

She made sure to always assign work so that he would have plenty of time to get it done without his condition getting in the way of his school work. She was told that Madam Pomfrey would accompany him to the shrieking shack, but she insisted on going as well every single time. She would stay with him for as long as she could, and every morning after, she would bring him breakfast so he wouldn’t have to wait until he got back to the school. 

In the middle of his third year, she became nervous for him as his classmates learned about vampires, grindylows, and other such creatures, including werewolves. One of his classmates figured it out very early. Another boy who McGonagall was sure would be in Slytherin, but was happily surprised to find him in her house. One day as he was leaving her classroom, he called out, “You knew.” They never spoke of it again, but she saw how the boys’ friends stayed with him anyway, and supported him in ways even she didn’t know about. 

In school they teach us that the arts isn’t a practical job. They tell you, you have to pick something practical. They teach us this only because they cannot teach it.

They cannot teach you how to create worlds beyond their comprehension, they cannot teach you how to make a meaningful metaphor, they cannot teach you how to give the humanity a little more magic.

I’ve never had a pen pal but I have heard about it and I find it to be a wonderful idea, so I would like to experience it. I am a college student. I have completed two years already in a community college and I plan on going into Education at a four-year college this upcoming fall. I am an introvert (my personality type is INFJ), and it is hard for me to make friends or socialize, so who knows maybe this will help me a little bit. Some of my interest are music, books, different cultures, traveling, art, film, and a bunch of other stuff. I take pride in being open-minded and I accept anyone for who they are. So yeah, that’s me!

Preferences: Anyone between 18 and 25.

How do we understand the idea of art? How do we understand the concept of social justice? What does Art Education do?

These were some of the questions explored by school administrators, arts educators, teachers, parents, youth, and community organizers gathered on March 24th at the Brooklyn Museum’s Arts as Social Justice Roundtable. Through group discussion, image reflection, and sharing personal stories, participants investigated the intersection of the Arts and Social Justice and the pedagogical implications of this relationship.After sharing some of the issues most impacting their communities, participants broke into smaller groups where they  raised a host of other questions including, “How can art redefine social concepts and dynamics?” “What is the relationship between art-making and learning in general? How can art bring communities together?” and “How can art help us imagine new social possibilities?”

Some key findings from the gathering included:

  • We often assume a shared understanding of Social Justice and this is often counter-productive.
  • Social Justice should be approached as a commitment to PROCESS. An understanding of pedagogy and the ability to facilitate groups around difficult conversations is essential to this process.
  • At its core Art can also be understood as a process/approach towards learning and doing. There is an intimate relationship between all authentic learning and Art.
  • Within the context of Art, a Social Justice perspective requires us to expand and questions traditional notions of “Fine Arts” and artistic “Canons”.
  • Art Education is essential to Social Justice because Social Justice requires Social Imagination.
  • There is power in collective thinking and group learning. There is a need and yearning for more spaces that bring together diverse cross-section of people to engage and to wrestle with these questions.

Over the next two years, the Education Division will continue asking these questions as we begin a new partnership with local community organizations and middle schools in Central Brooklyn (Districts 16 & 17) with the support from the Kenan Foundation. The partnership will result  in a student-driven community arts project highlighting the transformative power of the arts. The Arts as Social Justice Roundtable was the first step in learning from colleagues across the field and sharing inspirational approaches as we begin this new endeavor.

In reflecting on art education, imagination, and social justice, Director of Education, Adjoa Jones de Almeida recently wrote,  “Now more than ever, we must look at those realms in our collective consciousness that privilege the imagination and the human capacity to create. Continuous engagement with artistic practices strengthens our imagination muscle. Arts education is essential, because it builds our ability to dream and imagine beyond our present condition.” As we work to strengthen our Arts as Social Justice Pedagogy, Education staff will continue investigating the intersection between Arts and Social Justice in our teaching as well as in conversations with visitors, staff, and community members.

Elizabeth Warren - The Trump-DeVos Budget: An All-Out Assault on America’s Kids

“You remember Betsy Devos, the person the Republicans confirmed to be Secretary of Education? The big complaint was that this is a woman who does not believe in public education. Well, she just proved it." 

The Trump-DeVos budget cuts $11 billion from public education and would take away 22 programs from kids K-12, including:

  • After School Programs
  • Teacher Training
  • Class Size Reduction
  • School Arts Programs
  • Physical Education Programs
  • Foreign Language Programs
  • Education Technology
  • Mental Health Services
  • Bullying Initiatives
  • Special Olympics 

"Here’s the bottom line: the Trump-DeVos budget would push opportunities out of the reach of millions of students across this country; it would ruin lives.”

The Signs as Art School Stereotypes

Libra: Sweet Art Education student who seem traumatized by the weirdo studio majors, always smiling, super long hair

Pisces: New Age, Eccentric Sculpture student who goes to music festivals every weekend, makes projects about the Illuminati and NWO, more #woke than you will ever be

Aquarius: Reserved Drawing/Illustration Major who draws hella good anime, never opens their mouth in critique until forced, vegan, fandom tees

Leo: Hipster painting student who thinks they’re the absolute shit, brags about smoking hookah and everything they do is meant to be ironic

Scorpio: Irritated Photography student who hates being in class but is always there, favorite color is black, always looks like they need a nap, opinionated

Aries: Yuppie Visual Communications student who brags about their love of craft beer, blood made of coffee, has really strong opinions about fonts, needs to relax

Virgo: Chill Ceramics student who smokes a lot of weed, thinks they suck but they really slay, succulents and cable knit sweaters

Capricorn: Super skilled Furniture Design student who can find a solution to anything, wears flannels and steel toed boots and it actually looks natural, works 109 hours a week

Cancer: Friendly but reserved Art Therapy student who is quietly reading everyone like a book, internal dialogue is constantly sassy, pastel hair, always on the verge of mental breakdown

Taurus: Edgy Printmaking student who shops at stores no one has heard of, small clique, loves to read, super detail oriented, doesn’t accept criticism well, makes everyone uncomfortable by bickering with professor

Gemini: General Fine Arts Student who floats from clique to clique seamlessly, indecisive, friendly but values alone time, inquisitive, listens to Nirvana and also Disney Soundtracks

Sagittarius: Headstrong Double Major who can’t keep their thoughts straight, skips class a lot, obsessed with Tim Burton movies, smokes cigarettes for aesthetic, talks too much during critique

So one of my art teachers from College, who i’ve been friends with online for quite a few years just posted this, and I really think this sort of thinking should be recognized, and inspire more educators in these situations to take up the same cause, because this is fantastic. 


***UPDATE****

I plan on showing him this if it gets lots of notes, but also, he added this comment!
