Art Worksheet Art Education 1600, Art and Music since 1945 Your Name: Zach Brenner This worksheet is designed to prepare you with critical skills for analyzing a visual art work. Follow the steps in this worksheet carefully and it will help you organize your thinking. In Step 1 , you will analyze the artwork in detail. Look and look again for things you don't see the first time. In Step 2 , you interpret the work, either by telling a story about the work or telling what the work means to you in some way. You will use the details you listed in Step 1 to back up your interpretation. In Step 3 , you go beyond what the work means to you and judge the work. Do you think it was successful? How does it make sense? The goal of these three steps is to understand the organization and a strategy for writing about visual art. You will also be prepared for your next assignment, when you will write about another artwork for the Critical Art Essay. REMEMBER that late papers will not receive a participation point for turning in on time, AND you will lose points on a late paper, as follows 1 day late: -2 2 days late: -3 3 days late: -5 4 days late: -10 Where do I find an art form to write about? Here is a list of acceptable locations where you can look at visual art. When you choose an art work to write about, remember that you must see the work in-person, in Columbus, Ohio, and the work you choose must have been done after 1945. These requirements are to be strictly followed or you assignment will not be accepted. If you are taking the online class at remote location outside Columbus, you will need to find an artwork in your area. Email your instructor for approval of an alternative site or your paper will not be accepted.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
