Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso

Hi there, Chocokitten123 here and welcome back to Create Like the Greats. Today I am going to talk about Pablo Picasso. Pablo was born in Málaga, Spain, in 1881, Pablo Picasso, became one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century and the creator (with Georges Braque) of Cubism. A Spanish expatriate painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer. Picasso was considered radical in his work. After a long prolific career, he died on April 8, 1973, in Mougins, France. The enormous body of Picasso’s work remains, however, and the legend lives on—a tribute to the vitality of the “disquieting” Spaniard with the “sombrepiercing” eyes who superstitiously believed that work would keep him alive. His art is amazing and awesome and I wish to grow up to be just like him. Well thats all for now see you next time on Create Like the Greats!

Johnny Bulunbulun

Johnny Bulunbulun

Hi there, Chocokitten123 here and welcome back to Create Like the Greats! Today I am going to talk about Johnny Bulunbulun. Johnny was born in northern Australia, know as Arnhem land, in 1946. When he was older, his family moved to the nearby Christian mission in Milingimbi so that he could attend school. He left school early to work in a variety of labouring jobs on the mission, at the ‘government’ settlement at Maningrida, and with the Armed Services in Darwin. Johnny was a senior member of the Ganalbingu group and was one of the most important singers and ceremonial men in north-central Arnhem Land. Then he moved west of the Arafura Swamp and got married, he married Nelly Wunuwun, and meet her brother, Jack Wunuwun, and got inspired. Then he had a career in 1977 after he was commissioned to complete an individual mural on the wall and ceiling of an underground Australian Defence Department instillation in Canberra. Some of His art pieces were “Bark Painting” and “Bat Dreaming”. Johnny Bulunbulun died in Australia, in 2010 at the age of 64, but he is still remembered as a great artist to this day. I love his art work and I hope you like it too. Well that’s all for now, this is Chocokitten123 and see you next time on Create Like the Greats!

artVenture 2017

artVenture 2017

This is one for the record books…artVenture 2017 was AMAZING! This year it was held at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Lincoln. It was such a great room that allowed for space not only for the art but for people to walk around and enjoy the whole experience. I was helping out handing out programs and also got a chance to check out the art. This year I was able to do two art pieces – a blinged out deer skull named Beautiful Hunter and a 3D pen art named Butterfly Garden. Both art experiences were different and taught me something new about art.

I love being a part of this experience especially since my mom volunteers. Getting a chance to pass out flyers, help make baskets, pick up items, and work with the great staff at our council only makes me appreciate all the hard work every volunteer gives to give girls like me an amazing opportunity.

This year there was a special VIP event only for adults but this was great because it gave people who never knew what Girl Scouts is about a chance to see that we are more than just cookies and crafting. We had girl artists who welded bridges, created pottery, worked with glass, made beautiful jewelry, and so much more.

This year our featured artist was Tom Sullivan. When my mom showed me some of his art pieces it made me feel different. Some expressed sadness but it was a beautiful sadness. Others made me feel strong and some are just fun like the Mickey and Friends and Beatles one he did. I really liked the special ones he made for the artVenture event. My mom bought me one so that we can have it as a memory of this year’s event. It is really cool to know that he creates art on his free time. It gives me ideas that when I have free time I can work on art as a way to express myself and get better.

Well that is it for now. I can’t wait til next year…but for now you can see our featured artist and hopefully if you are around you can come to this event that is made and supported by Girl Scouts. artventure2017

Create Like the Greats!

Create Like the Greats!

Hi there, Chocokitten123 here and welcome back to Create Like the Greats! Today I am going to talk about the famous Chinese artist, Shen Quan. Shen Quan was born in Deqing, Zhejiang, China, in 1682. He was a famous scholar, musician, and poet, and also was admired for his paintings. He specialized in scenes of animals and flowers, his paintings look really realistic and beautiful, some of his paintings were “Pine, Plums and Cranes”, ” Pair of Phoenixes in the Morning Glow”, and “Cat”. “Cat”, was a painting that he just painted for fun, but it came out to be a sensation and it looks amazing. Shen was invited to Japan by a high official.  He arrived in Nagasaki in the final month of 1731 with two students, acquiring many Japanese students after his arrival. His paintings soon became very popular, and after his 1733 return to China he continued to send paintings back to Japan. Shen had many pupils while in Japan; his most important was Kumashiro Yuhi, who in turn taught So Shiseki and Kakutei. Other artists influenced by Shen included Katsushika Hokusai, Maruyama Okyo, and Ganku. In 1760, at the age of 78, Shen Quan died, but he and his painting are stilled admired to this day.
