  • Art Assignment #1
    Select two images of works of art, one that you know that you like or have positive feelings for and the second that provokes negative feelings. Add the images to a word document or powerpoint slide with citation (artist's name, title, date, medium, size, location).
    • Submit two images of artwork in a word document or pdf that represent works specifically created as art or exhibited as art
    • Cite image titles per citation directions
    • Included paragraph(s) describing the reason for choosing selected works
    Do not submit "clip-art" found by googling "art" or submitting a press photograph of an athlete (or anyone else) and telling me why you do or don't like them. You need to write several sentences describing the reasons for your selections. The purpose of this assignment is to get you thinking about how you interact with art and discuss your responses. I'm not looking for, "I like this, or I hate this," but more a description of why something about the artwork causes a reaction positive or negative. An example is available in the Lecture 1 powerpoint. Here are links for websites that you can easily access the requirements for this assignment.

The earliest form was Chinese Pottery, which first appeared in Jiangxi, to the south of the Yangzi River basin. Like cave painting, as well as other types of prehistoric art, the invention and development of pottery is a reflection of social, economic and environmental conditions - many of which are still poorly understood - and a significant indicator of a society's cultural development. ● ● ● ● ● ● WATCH THIS: Better Know: The Starry Night BHg55Y ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● X7YjiTZJg Art & Meaning Lecture 2 Part 2 • • • • • ● ● ● • • • • ● ● Art & Meaning ō ō ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
