Step 1. Choose a work of art that you like.
Any source is fine. If you need help finding works of art, look here:
1. Your textbook
2. Wiki Art: www.wikiart.org.
3. Metropolitan Museum of Art website: www.metmuseum.org
- At the top of your paper, cite the work: List the title (underline or italicize the title), artist, date, and what type of art it is (drawing, painting, sculpture, photograph etc.)
Sample citation: Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh, 1889, oil painting.
-If you are unable to find the title, artist, or date put ‘unknown’ in its place.
-Answer the following questions in essay format. Essay format means that you will format your writing in paragraphs, not bullet points. Please write 3-5 sentences for each question listed below and note that the length requirement is 1-2 pages total. Please indent the beginning of each new paragraph. Start a new paragraph each time you begin a new topic. Do not include the assignment questions in your essay.
Note: Be sure to put what you learned from your research in your own words. If you decide to use the same words as you found in your research, put quotations around the words that are the same, limit your quote to one sentence, and put where you found this quote in parenthesis after the quotation.
-Cite your research sources. Any format (MLA, etc.) is fine.
-Upload the image you chose with your essay.
