Students will write a 2-page essay that offers an analysis of a specific painting in their favorite painting medium.
There are two parts to this assignment. First, after reading the chapter on painting, identify your favorite medium in painting. In 1 to 2 paragraphs, briefly discuss how it differs from other mediums and the advantages and disadvantages of using that medium.
Next, you will select a painting in your preferred medium from an online museum to research and then discuss that painting as you would with others.
The lesson for this unit went into depth on three approaches you can take when discussing artwork: technical, historical, and observational. You will begin your paper with an introduction that includes identifying the approach you will take and why you chose that approach.
Then, discuss your selected painting and its visual elements using your chosen approach. Include two other artworks that are similar in style, era, or subject matter as your painting and discuss the similarities. Finally, end your discussion with a question for your audience.
The body of your essay must be at least three full pages of writing. It should be 12-point, Times New Roman font. Include an image of the painting you are discussing at the end of your written paper as Appendix A. The title page (if used), Appendix, and reference page do not count toward the minimum page requirement.
