    Do You Have Any Tips For A Beginner Acrylic Painter? Hi there! I have never really painted before. I just need tips on how I should go about this, I am very excited 🙂

    • Curator says:

      10 THINGS ABOUT PAINTING WITH ACRYLICS

      1. PAINT & COLORS: Acrylics are perfect for the beginner. Acrylics are almost odorless; I can smell a very faint damp plastic odor with acrylics. Acrylic colors do not mix or blend well or easily – can be frustrating. They dry very fast and dark colors may dry a shade lighter and light colors may dry a shade darker.

      If you buy Acrylics from Michaels or Aaron Bros. (owned by Michaels) markup their prices considerably. Search their sites for discount coupons.

      As a beginner you can get “student grade” paint, but “artist grade” paint is preferred and more expensive.
      Initially, get the following colors:
      Titanium White (or just White, you’ll need a big tube)
      Ivory Black (or just Black, use sparingly)
      Ultramarine Blue (or just Blue)
      Alizarin Crimson (or Carmine Red or just Red)
      Cadmium Yellow (or just Yellow)
      Viridian Green
      Orange
      Burnt Umber (Brown)

      2. BRUSHES: Brushes clean up with soap and water. Dried paint does not clean up and easily ruins brushes and clothing. Don’t let paint dry on the brushes. Wear an artist’s apron to protect your clothing.
      No. 1 Pointed Round Synthetic Bristle Brush
      No. 2 Bright or Short Flat Synthetic Bristle Brush
      No. 4 Bright or Short Flat Synthetic Bristle Brush
      No. 12 Flat Synthetic Bristle Brush
      Reference: http://www.dickblick.com/productinfo/learn/brushes

      3. MEDIUM: Acrylic Medium. Mediums extends the concentrated pigments of tube paint. (You don’t have to buy this right away.)
      Reference: http://www.goldenpaints.com/products/medsadds/index.php

      4. SOLVENT: Water. Water is used to thin paints, thin mediums, and clean brushes. I use clean margarine tubs for the water. One holds clean water to sometimes thin paints and the other is used to rinse the brushes as needed.

      5. PALETTE: You need a palette on which to put your paints. It can be a throwaway plastic picnic plate, a piece of cardboard or foam core board covered with freezer paper, or a disposable paper palette pad. How to keep the paint on the palette moist and workable during a painting session is challenging. Keep a small spray bottle handy to mist your paints.
      Reference: http://www.cheapjoes.com/catalog/product/view/id/19927

      6. SUPPORT: Canvas panels, stretched canvas, or a canvas pad. “Support” is the fancy term for stretched canvas, or anything else on which you fine art paint. Supports should be primed with gesso. Supports from art and craft supply stores are usually pre-primed with white acrylic gesso and are suitable for both oil and acrylic paints. They will be labeled as gessoed. As you develop your skills, you may find that you’ll have to re-gesso some of the cheaper canvases.

      Bristol board is an inexpensive support (painting surface) for beginning acrylics.
      Reference: http://www.cheapjoes.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=bristol+board+pads

      7. EASEL: Anything with which you can prop up your support (canvas) so that it is at comfortable angle and height. I’ve used everything from an empty three ring notebook to a fancy French plein air easel.
      Reference: http://search.jerrysartarama.com/search?keywords=table+top+easel

      8. CLEANUP: Wash your brushes off with soap. Dawn liquid dish detergent works well. Keep paper towels (e.g., Viva) or rags handy to mop up spills and dry your brushes.

      9. WORKSPACE: Because acrylics are so permanent and dry so fast, protect the table or area your going to paint on or near. Wear old clothes when painting and a painter’s apron.

      10. IMAGINATION: If it is at all possible, take a painting class. Your local library should have several books on beginning painting and ideas that might spark your imagination. Ask at the Reference Desk. Librarians will do everything they can to help you.

      Happy painting.

    Best Conference In College Basketball? I was having this debate with my father. He said the Big 10 and I said the Big East. Who do you think and why?

    • Curator says:

      Big 10

      the reason?

      1. At least 3 potential F4 teams in this conference (Michigan, Michigan ST and Indiana)
      2. Depth. Good teams behind those one above. Wisconsin, Ohio ST, Illinois, and Minnesota
      3. Many NPOY contenders in this conference—- Trey Burke, Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo. Possibly Trevor Mbakwe, Derrick Nix, and Aaron Craft

      That right there are 3 legit reason on why this year the best conference in college basketball is the Big 10

      Now overall im gonna have to say the Big East. They produce NBS players every year that have good teams and at least 8 teams make the tournament each year

  • Bob says:

    Learning Objective C? I am completely new to programming and the programming language but I want to learn to program apps on the apple app store. I know nothing about programming except for a couple of names. Would I want to learn c++ or + before objective c? What are some effective ways to learn? Any recommended books? How long should it take to learn to make apps that work? Or just small programs in general? Thanks!

    • Curator says:

      This first thing that I would say to someone that wants to become a programmer is that you will need to dedicate regular time to learning the craft. Take whatever time you think it will take you to learn and multiply it by 2 or 3!

      Next, do you honestly like to solve logic puzzles? If so, then you may have the basic mindset that will help you to eventually become a good programmer. If you don’t then it may not be for you.

      I feel that the most effective way to learn is to have something that you really want to accomplish using a program. It has to be something that is really going to drive you, because I guarantee there are going to be rough spots during the learning process that will make you want to give up if you don’t have something that you want to see on the screen that you have a vested (perhaps even emotional) interest in.

      When I was in music school, one of my instructors kept repeating that the first 50 songs that a person writes are throwaways. He was trying to make the point that you have to embrace the fact that what you do at first just isn’t going to be all that good, and that its okay. Just keep on writing and you’ll get there.

      As far as how to learn, here is what I suggest:

      – Get a copy of a book – a real book, and only 1 book – so that you can mark in it as you learn. I think for you Aaron Hillegass’ Objective-C Programming may be an excellent choice. It is written for true beginners, and starts by teaching C, and then gets you into Obj-C.

      (http://www.amazon.com/Objective-C-Programming-Ranch-Guide-Guides/dp/0321706285/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358307461&sr=8-1&keywords=objective+c+programming+big+nerd+ranch)

      – Go slowly. Don’t skip anything. Make sure that you understand each page as best you can before moving on.

      – Go through the entire book. Try to resist the urge to draw from multiple sources.

      – Type in every line of code yourself. Don’t download samples – to me that’s a form a laziness that won’t serve you when starting from scratch.

      There are good sites out there that help you learn as well. One of the best is http://thenewboston.org/list.php?cat=33. Still – I say that the book approach is best for newbies, but this is perhaps only my opinion.

      I would bet that in about 6 months of steady effort you will start to get the hang of Xcode and the Obj-C language and will be able to start making things happen that you want to accomplish.

      The best to you.

    Poem About Expression? The Expressonist Killed The Critic

    Kill the critic and give credit to the expressionist.
    How is a V-shaped seagull flying above a crayoned-blue ocean an artistic fail?
    Is this a world where we are quickly segregated because the consensus wouldn’t play our tune?
    Unique was invented for a reason,
    It put man on the moon and crafted sculptures out of wood.
    Spilling  sadness on paper,
    Made some sombre men rich,
    And provided a sanctuary from loud life – for the rest.
    So come closer, 
    Read this and find  flaw in my writing,
    Tell me what went wrong in whatever stanza.
    Smash my ambitions of being Wordsworth or Wilde.
    But as long as my hand can handle a pen, 
    And my lungs can breathe the oxygen in the air,
    I will carry on releasing my creativity from the first corner of the page, till the last.

      I love it Aazza … You write best when you are angry!!!
      I think this is the best one of your poems that I have read because I felt it!
      I connected with it emotionally and to me … that’s poetry!!!
      Of course … everybody has an opinion and this is yahoo …
      so we are asking people from all over the world, too true?
      Maybe you can find a reflection from this poem?
      And what I mean by that is to write passionately … like you have here.
      You are on yahoo … so you are already a public figure …?
      You are Aaron … The Poet …
      That is how I see you and know you …
      and so do many others who read your work.
      I get cranky also when people tell me that my poetry is not so good
      but we get lots of compliments and I have read heaps of people telling you that they liked your poems.
      People are reading them!!!
      You are being read!!!
      Take heart!!!
      Be proud!
      okay???
