Looking at Art
#1. Describe: Make a list of at least 15 things you see in the artwork – the list can be made up of objects/things, colours and shapes. Make an effort to use single words in your list for example: house, cat, blue, etc.
#2. Analyse In three full sentences analyze where things are in the artwork. Do not analyze what is happening but instead explain where things are. For example: There is a large, yellow moon in the upper right corner of the painting.
#3. Interpret In three full sentences explain what you think the artwork is about – you must include evidence to support your idea. Your explanation must be (and sound!) intelligent. For example: I believe that the artwork is about a political leader because the painting is filled with a group of men who appear to be gathered around and listening to a speaker.
#4. Information Share as much information as you can about the artist and the artwork. Use information you have been given in class or do research on your own.
#5. Judgment You must, must, must, must complete steps #1-4 before making a judgment. In two sentences answer the question: Does the artwork appeal to you? (Start your answer with the phrase “the artwork does/does not appeal to me because….”) Then in two more sentences answer the question: Is the artwork “good”? Support each answer with reasons.
