AP Art- Class Assignment 1: Chronicle

Chronicle- Take a part of your life (anything from a single 24 hour day, to a week, to a longer period like a year of your life) and make an art piece representing that period of time and your personal geography. You can incorporate text, make it like a visual journal. or it can be more abstract but be creative, be personal, and do not simply document, elevate the work to art.  

Here are two examples for inspiration: Above is an example of a piece I made for the Sketchbook Project which documents a day in NYC and where I traveled. Below is an example from designer and artist Paula Scher who creates maps of the world with text as she sees it, this example is of a tsunami.
