I want you to specifically focus on me going back to California for summers to visit my Dad in the paper. Below are instructions from the Professor. Travel Memoir: 8-9 pages (at least 4 sources) Deliverables: Your assignment is to write a 8-9 page memoir that reflects back on a stretch time spent in a particular place. For instance, if you’ve lived in a different state or country for awhile, you could use this as a frame for your memoir. If you grew up spending summers in Cape Cod, this might be a good backdrop for your narrative. Another approach might be to write a going-back type of story, where you return to a place that you’ve been away from for awhile and discover that things are not the same as you remember them. Perhaps the place has changed, but haven’t you too? Be sure to integrate scene and reflection, facts and memory, people and place. Also, finding the right tone for your memoir will be essential for engaging a broad audience. The memoir should be written in first person and include vivid descriptions and details, dialogue, insights and self-knowledge. To enhance your understanding of the memoir, be sure to read through the memoir module, which features an excerpt from Russell Baker’s memoir, Growing Up, and an excerpt from Annie Dillard’s memoir, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. A Note on Sources Including sources can help the credibility (ethos) and also offer a broader context that can reach beyond the personal. That said, one approach might be to write a draft without the use of sources and then go back to see what parts (of that time and place you’re writing about) could be enhanced by a reference to an interesting fact, statistic, happening, insight, etc. The possibilities for incorporating relevant and insightful support are vast. Please use sources from credible websites, articles, books, etc. Also, feel free to use primary sources: interviews, photographs, surveys, etc. Also, please note that you do not need to use all of the sources that you list on the Works Cited page as in-text citations. I’ll assume the other sources informed your essay in a more general way. Please use MLA format and style. For easy reference, here are links from Purdue OWL to: The MLA Formatting and Style Guide (Links to an external site.) The Works Cited Page (Links to an external site.) In-Text Citation (Links to an external site.) Points to consider: I will grade your memoir on how well-written and coherent it is, how it employs pathos, logos, and ethos, and how well it connects with a broad audience and reaches beyond the personal. I will also be factoring in the flexible rubric in the modules section, which details the following: audience awareness, purpose, genre, evidence, structure, exigency, and quality of writing. Please pay particular attention to issues of clarity, grammar, structure, coherence, syntax, timing, tone, honesty, discovery, creativity and completeness. You should try to avoid, eliminate, or minimize typographical errors, misspellings, incorrect or missing punctuation, and sentences that are too long, redundant, or misplaced.

Write an informal essay (with introduction and conclusion) on the chosen topic.

Write an informal essay (with introduction and conclusion) on the chosen topic. Tell it to me.
Your introduction should include the thesis statement – main idea of the paper (here is more detailed explanation – Don’t include any new information in the conclusion. It should  restate the thesis statement of the paper.
Support your ideas with relevant arguments and examples (in-text citations). Write in any manner you wish.

Art can be broken down into three main categories: fine art, craft, and popular culture.
According to your textbook,(PDF UPLOADED) what is the difference between fine art and craft?
How does the idea of functionality fit into these categories? What kind of functions can artwork have? What is the difference between practical and conceptual functions?
Do you agree that fine art cannot have a practical purpose? Why or why not?
It goes without saying; do not cheat or plagiarize. You may use the PDF and online sources, but you need to CITE THEM if you use sources like these.

Please read the editorial by Joyce Gao, a student at Brown University, found here:
The author discusses a number of different ways to deal with these statues. 
Can art be transformed?
The meanings of some works of art works may be murky, or completely abstract.  Sometimes the artist is portraying something specific; at other times a work of art takes on a specific meaning, whether the creator intended it or not.
Currently there is a debate as to what to do with statues that celebrate confederate heroes.  Should they just be removed?  Destroyed? Put in special museums? 
Maybe most importantly, do you think that a piece of art (or piece of music for that matter) can be transformed to have a new meaning?  Can art evolve and change?  Can things that once represented something terrible, come to have a new beauty?
This paper is about your opinion.  You can quote from this article, or reference others if you want (though do remember to cite if you do).

Hello everyone!
It took a bit of digging and thinking for me to figure out which ones I wanted to continue to revise for this next module.
The first two pieces I have are basically digital art. I want to figure out how to “revise” them to fit my portfolio by creating a mock-up of them onto some kind of product, basically create a use for them other than just artwork as I’m now realizing half of my portfolio is just artwork and doesn’t actually fall into graphic design. An interesting revelation to have at the end of all this.
The third piece is my business card which I still feel needs further refinement, it seems kind of boring to me. Maybe it’s fine, but I’d love more feedback on this one.
The fourth and fifth pieces are both envelopes. I want to have these done so that they can be in a mock-up set for both Upper Crust and my own branding, but they both just feel plain to me. The Upper Crust one needs to be revised with the new logo and then, I guess I need to figure out how to make an envelope look interesting? Or cohesive with the set other than just blank with the logo on it, if that makes sense.
Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give!

These are my next five pieces. Once again my formatting is a bit off on this pdf. I plan to mock up my websites in a similar way that I have with the other three pieces. Any and all feedback is welcome! Thanks in advance 🙂

Theme: Your thesis statement should address this question: Should museums return

Theme: Your thesis statement should address this question: Should museums return cultural objects/ artworks
that have requested for repatriation by? You will need to define repatriation in the paper. You will also focus
more closely on one specific artwork or object. Pick a specific artwork or cultural artifact that has been
requested for repatriation from the list below. Some of these objects have been returned and some have not. You
should write about this process in your paper. What are some of the complications related to the process of
repatriation? If you are addressing an object from a Native American group you will need to address NAGPRA
(The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) and if you are addressing artwork in a museum
that is being/was requested back from another country you will need to address how international laws play a
role in repatriation.
You also need to include visual analysis and historical context for the artwork you selected. Here are some
questions you may want to address. You should address some of these, but you do not need to cover them all:
• Why was the artwork or cultural object created? What was the purpose of the artwork or cultural object?
• Who made it and who is the intended audience?
• How was it produced?
• What is the political, economic, religious and/or social context? i.e what was happening in society at the
time when it was made?
• Where was it located after it was completed and who has/had access to it?
