(Assignment 1)

Art Journal Week Three

Refer to the assigned reading from the textbook and required videos as examples of how to interpret works of art.

Select a work of art of your choice from any of the interactive museums provided in Week One, the CourseMate Bonus images, or from your local art museum. Contemplate the work of art and add your interpretation of the art, based on the characteristics of the corresponding movement, to your art journal (the Prezi started in Week One). Pay close attention to style, media (materials), methods, subjects and any other details that make this work significant, using appropriate art terminology. Be sure to include your personal reaction to the work of art and an image of the work.

TIP: To fully contemplate the work of art using what you have learned about art and art appreciation, it is recommended that you examine the work of art for at least ten minutes, taking note of your reactions and observations throughout your examination. Use these notes to compose your journal entry.

Include an image of the work of art you have chosen and be sure to cite the work of art.

Please follow the basic modified APA style citation format in the APA Artwork Citations document to reference works of art.

Submit a Word document with your name and the URL to your art journal.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your journal entries.

Comparing Movements and Works of Art

Select two works of art, each from a different movement. Select movements that you have not previously addressed in your discussions.

Describe these two works of art by applying at least three questions art historians ask and four words art historians use. Explain how iconographic, historical, political, philosophical, religious, and social factors of the movements are reflected in each work of art. Include images of both works of art in an appendix at the end of your paper.

Use at least two scholarly sources to support your points. The ProQuest and Credo Reference databases in the Ashford Online Library are helpful sources of information, as are the museum resources provided in Week One. To locate ProQuest and Credo Reference, visit the Ashford Online Library through the tab on the left navigation toolbar and select “Databases by Subject” and then “Visual and Performing Arts.”

Your paper must be three to five pages in length, excluding the title and reference pages and images. Be sure to include images of both works of art in an appendix at the end of your paper. Format your paper according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
