Give an example or two to support what you mean.

Throughout history, people have questioned the importance of the arts and humanities, what the purpose of art is, and if its even worth preserving, let alone studying.
For this writing assignment, I would like you to write two strong, college-level paragraphs of 10-12 sentences where you discuss what what you think and feel the purpose of art really is. Is it for self-expression? Revealing values about our culture or society? Give an example or two to support what you mean.
Remember, there are no wrong answers here; only the potential for unsupported ideas. Take your time and think about this and weigh what you think about what you have read and watched in this class so far.
Take care not to stray from the question that I’ve asked you here – there are many “rabbit holes” that you could explore, but we want to stay focused on this concept for now. 🙂
Once you have proofread for clarity and typos, please submit your response in the text box below.

Materials, methods, processes used in production.

Chapter 14 – 15: Donatello’s David, Michelangelo’s David, and Bernini’s David
While comparing and contrasting these are things to consider to help create a critical analysis:
Subject, Composition, Content (What is the artist trying to communicate?)
How does it fit and relate to the culture and time when it was created?
Materials, Methods, Processes used in production.
What do you appreciate? What don’t you appreciate?
Elements of art; how the artist uses Space, Line, Shape, Form, Value, Color, Texture
Principles of Design; how the artist organizes the elements using Movement, Contrast, Variety, Emphasis, Rhythm, Pattern, Balance, Unity

What does that tell you about the work?

Take a look at the image of the painting https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/memento-5-kerry-james-marshall/ZgGvKUm7eu861Q
Provide a short answer (150 to 300 words) to each of the questions about the work posed below. (A total of 900 to 1800 words)
The Four Roles of the Artist
1.Artists help us to see the world in new or innovative ways.
2.Artists make a visual record of the people, places, and events of their time.
3.Artists make functional objects and structures (buildings) more pleasurable and, thereby, elevate them or imbue hem with meaning.
4.Artists give form to the immaterial—hidden or universal truths, spiritual forces, personal feelings
1.Which of the 4 roles of the artist mentioned in chapter 1 do you think this artist fits into the best? Why?
2.What has the most emphasis in the work, or what is its focal point? What does that tell you about the work?
3.What associations does this work bring up for you? Tell us what element, principle of design or piece of subject matter helps make each association?
4.How does the way the medium is handled (roughness or smoothness of paint, stone, etc.) affect your interpretation? Can you imagine it being handled another way?
5. How does the artist’s identity affect how you interpret the work?
6. What historical or environmental relationships affect how you interpret the work?

After we go over this in class, you are expected to use this method by applying it to all our assigned readings (see the class schedule below).

Early in the semester, we will go over a note-taking technique (The Cornell
Note-taking System). After we go over this in class, you are expected to use this method by
applying it to all our assigned readings (see the class schedule below). You will turn these into
your peer mentors, who will offer you feedback as you go. At the end of the semester, you will
turn these into me, so I suggest that you get a notebook to do so. In fact, you can combine your
notes with your vocabulary journals, just put each in a separate section.
the notes have to be in the format thAT I sent you the example

State (briefly) the ways in which you will prove it.

This exercise is called a response essay. Looking is not as simple as you may think. Rather than merely describe the object, you will want to analyze and interpret it. You need to ask yourself the questions:
“What is the most important thing this work communicates to the viewer?”
“What conveys this thing? What attributes of this work (lines, colors, subject matter, expressions, environment) evoke the associations, ideas or emotions in the viewer to convey its meaning?
The challenge is to analyze a work of art, separating its parts in order to understand the whole. You must resist the urge to merely describe, and instead evaluate the object.
This paper is NOT about research, the history of the work or the history of the artist. You can do the paper with little to no research at all. I am not looking for a history of the work, or the artist. Knowing some of the history may help you with your interpretation, but this paper is not a report about that history.
Organization of the Paper: (further explanations and examples can be found in the Survival Guide handout)
The Introduction. (Not necessarily in order.)
Write a Short Description of the Work You Have Chosen. Include identifying subject matter or forms, setting or space, color, and medium, artist and current location.
State Your Main Argument. A thesis statement related to the overall effect or meaning of the object. (i.e. What does this work mean?)
State (Briefly) the Ways in Which You Will Prove It. (Forecast your main points.)
The Main Body: You will describe three or four pieces of evidence from the work you’re looking at to support your thesis statement. This evidence can be from any of the following areas. You don’t need to use them all.
The medium (the material the work is made with), the medium’s traits, and the artist’s use of the medium.
The relevant visual elements (i.e.: line, shape and space, composition and relative scale, light and color, style)
The composition (i.e.: unity/variety, balance, emphasis, focal point)
The subject matter, if the work is representational. (What does it picture. If there are people, how do they react to each other or the viewer.)
The relationship the formal elements and composition have to the subject’s meaning (or overall effect).
The Conclusion.
Restate the Main Argument.
Place this work of art into the big picture. Relate it to a larger issue, art-historical movement, etc.
Attach an image of the object (This can be a postcard purchased from the museum bookstore, a photograph, or your sketch. Your own sketch does not need to be professional quality.)

We are shifting for this week’s assignment, given the momentous events of the week.

We are shifting for this week’s assignment, given the momentous events of the week. As you may be aware, Queen Elizabeth passed away yesterday. (I am in London right now. What a time to be here.) This is an historic moment. I’ll contextualize it in our lecture for next week.
For this week’s discussion, chose an image of Queen Elizabeth II. How does the image you’ve chosen reflect royalty and reflect her position as Queen? Please upload your images with your discussion post. We’ll use this historic moment to discuss visual analysis this coming week.
