Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Journal
Art Journal Week Four
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.
