Rivermont Collegiate
Bettendorf, Iowa
US and 8th Grade Rivermont art students are creating a mythical themed linoleum plate to be printed at this year's Steamroller Event at St. Ambrose.
MAKE IT BIG III (A Steamroller Event) We'll be making large-and-in-charge prints for the community and for the awareness of art importance. In addition we will have multiple stations set up for other printing activities. Everyone is welcome to attend and to participate.
STEM needs to be STEAM. The arts is a very important part of our world. Something that needs to be recognized and cultivated on the community level.
Outside of the Galvin Fine Art Building, conveniently located on St. Ambrose Universities campus. More specifically we'll be set up in the parking lot just east of the Gaines and Lombard stop sign. Look for the steamroller or email for specific directions.

My favorite part about this artwork would be the fact that I hadn’t done anything like this before and the end result was way better that I had thought it would be. Now for my least favorite, it would have to be the fact that I don’t have the steadiest hand which tends to result in many small errors. For the animal I choose an elephant because ever since I was little, I have always loved elephants. As for the choice of designs/patterns it was more so what I had just learned about patterns and trying to come up with them as I go along. If I could re-create this piece of art, I would try to think more about a pattern that I might have chosen but ended up not turning out the way I wanted to. Also just take my time more because a lot of the errors were small errors. During the process of making this work, I learned many things. One being I learned a lot about patterns. Another would be I learned about the contrast between light and dark patterns—whether you have all dark patterns on one side or combine them and mash them together evenly. I was mainly surprised about how well it turned out compared to how I think it was going to. Once it was outlined in pencil, we used different types of drawing sharpies—in sizes .5 and .3—that I hadn’t used before to draw our patterns. The purpose of this work was to use the patterns to boarder the animal so that would be how one recognizes the animal, not actually drawing in sharpie the outline of the animal.

I drew a hummingbird and its reflection using a number of patterns and textures drawn close to one another. On the left half, the hummingbird is outlined by external textures; on the right, the hummingbird is textured on the interior. I began to recycle patterns at the upper portion of the left half as well as the entire right half. I am pleased with most of the textures I created, especially the bubbles and the right-angle weaves. The bubbles are my favorite, while the stripes (the first pattern I drew) are my least favorite. I made some textures much denser after I filled out both halves, such as the two weaved patterns and the stones. I was surprised to see how a pattern could become more tactile just by adding more line work.

My Achttien Dagen (18 days) memorial would be built as a functional bridge over a canal in Brussels, Belgium. Its purpose is to honor the brave members of the Belgian army, especially the Belgian tank crews, who held out for 18 days against impossible odds as the German Nazis invaded the country. I chose to memorialize this historical event because I have a personal connection to the events of WWII in Belgium, through my grandfather, Leon Boussemaere, who lived through the fighting in Belgium as a Belgian citizen. Although he has since passed away, I heard many stories of his adventures when I was younger. A memorial that becomes part of a community is a truly successful piece of artwork. In order to allow my memorial to become part of its community, I would need to talk to the people of the community, those personally affected by WWII in Belgium. They would have to appreciate and accept the memorial, and it would need to fit in appropriately, in a place where its target audience could sympathize with its message. If I could achieve these goals, my memorial would be truly successful The public’s interaction with my memorial would be mostly visual, looking at the bridge and the soldier statues and tank, but it will also be physical. Viewers would be able to walk over the bridge, a replica of one of the ones destroyed during the invasion, and see and touch the names of soldiers lost which would be engraved into the side of the tank.
