i need a title for my art final assignment piece. it's about asian culture, anyone got anything?
it will include information and pieces about geishas, samurai's, japanese and korean fashion, geisha clothing and their history, etc. and some manga and it's history too.
all i could come up with was 'memoirs of a geisha'.
my final piece of work will be a fully working, folding geisha fan.

FLVS has thier own rules(which screws me over!)
I'm not sure what failures you're talking about. I see no Fs on what you've listed, and a B isn't a failure, and shouldn't be thought of as one. Not having an absolutely perfect, all As transcript isn't going to kill your chances anywhere.
Yeshiva has a history of offering very good financial aid. They also have a rep for doing a very good job re: their med school applicants. If you like the place, you should apply there.
Cornell's aid is based entirely on financial need, not merit. But if you have financial need, they go out of their way to help you be able to attend.
BU doesn't always offer fabulous financial aid.
Doesn't Florida have a program where, if you get above a certain score on the SAT or something, you get free tuition at any Florida college? You need to check into that, because if finances are an issue, you would therefore want to have some Florida colleges on your list.
What subjects does Japanese Fashion fall under?
I'm doing a project in school and we have to talk about something for 4-7 minutes and I chose to do it on Japanese Street Fashion. We need at least a subject that covers two subjects, and I want to know what two subjects Japanese fashion might fall under...
I was thinking of history, where the creative and bright style derived from. And maybe the second subject it could also cover would be art, but I don't know which subtopic of art it would fall under... So please help me on that?
What other subject areas do you think Japanese fashion would fall under?
Perhaps cultivation of silk garments and of course, utility; the need to be stylish
and warm in daily life in a cold climate.
History of Tan-Jun Breathing....?
I'm sure many Martial Art styles have a similar exercise but what is done (just to give anyone an idea of what I'm talking about) is tighten the abdominal muscles (the focus being right below the naval) and exhale very very slowly through the mouth while slowly pushing your hands out. Then once completely out of breath, slowly inhale through the nose while pulling your hands in but keeping the abs flexed.
My question is: Did the Koreans get this technique from the Chinese or the Japanese? Apparently, when spelled, Tan-Jun has Chinese characters. I know that a lot of Korean styles and philosophy (overall culture) was influenced by the Chinese. However, I've seen some sources state that Tan-Jun breathing was brought to the Koreans by the Japanese. I am continuing my research on the topic but I was curious if anyone knew the history of Tan-Jun breathing or whether the Japanese or the Chinese were responsible for bringing it to Korea.
If anyone knows of any books that pertain or relate to this subject, would you kindly name a few so I can look into getting them?
@DC - I'll be sure to share what ever knowledge I find out, Lord Scandelous. Thanks.
@Cotton - This is done in Hapkido but I first practiced Taekwondo and this was introduced during my training in that style. I will say that Hapkido was incorporated into my training at the time so this very well could have been something that other Taekwondo schools got from Hapkido.
EDIT: @Cotton - Do you have a source for this info? I ask only so that I can learn more.
You are talking about the Hapkido, right?
Then, it's easy.
China => Japan => Korea is the route it took, I suppose.
Hapki-do is a Martial Art created by a Korean guy, who learned Japanese Aiki-do in Japan.
Based on Aiki-do he learned, he mixed up other Martial Arts such as Taekwondo, which was called as "Korean Karate" until 1940s, and created a new Martial Arts, Hapkido.
So, Hapkido has some portion of Aiki-do and Karate.
Both are Japanese Martial Arts, but especially Karate has lots of things to do with Chinese Kung-Fu.
Also, most of the basic words used there is from China.
So, the word Tan-Jun originally came from China to Japan, and it was taught in Korea from Japan.
Actually, the way of Tan-jun breathing is one of the most popular, common breathing in whole Asia...
Not only Martial Arts like Kung-Fu and Karate, but also, Yoga, etc.
Or sometimes, even for just a daily exercise.
Which art schools are better: The Art Institutes or SCAD?
I want to major in graphic design/art advertising but I am not sure which school would be a better choice for my major.
I like AI because you get to start art classes right away and the 4 classes (English, history, math and science) are spread out throughout your four years there.
But I heard that SCAD is more prestigious. And one of their study abroad program is offered in Japan.
I am studying Japanese, too but that's a whole other question lol.
A spokeswoman from the AI of Washington (the Institute I'd be attending) said 93% of their graduates found careers in their chosen field)
...Just thought I'd point that out for the SCAD fans lol)
SCAD is definitely more prestigious.
