4 Before you can truly experience art you must first learn to Perceive .
This means using your senses to analyze and interpret a piece of artwork in order to understand it. Just to look at something means you can recognize it as a car or a chair. To find the details in an object you have to spend time looking at it… sometimes touching it… sometimes listening to it (The Guitar). Can you remember the first time you saw an instrument? A video game? Someone doing a new style of dance… you were intrigued and wanted to look longer and study it. In this class I want you to look at things like it’s the first time you have seen them. Don’t take a still life or object for granted. Study every detail. Perception is to truly SEEING what the art is Communicating.

5 Why Do artists create Art?

6 The Purpose or Functions of Art
Personal Function: The artist tries to express his or her personal feelings through the artwork. Social Function: Art that conveys a sense of family, community, or civilization. Cultural. Spiritual Function: An artist may create a work to support the Religious or Spiritual beliefs of a culture. Physical Function: Functional Art: objects use in everyday life— such as architecture, jewelry, pottery, furniture, etc. Educational Function: Art that has been used throughout time as a way to pass on historical facts. Teaches about cultures.

1. Describe Describe what you see. What is the Subject? Do you know what medium (material) is used to make the piece. What is visually in the work? 2. Analyze How is the work organized? Describe the composition in terms of the Elements and Principles of Design. 3. Interpret What is the artist trying to communicate? What is the content of the piece? Guess the meaning. 4. Judge What do you think of the work? Think objectively. Is the piece successful in communicating the ideas of the artist?
