Guidelines for Writing About Visual Art Some of these guidelines are good tips for analyzing ANYthing 1. First consider the following elements of the “text”: Message, Method, Medium . Message— What is it saying? Method— How it goes about saying it. Medium— Why it’s delivered to you in a particular way (black and white, oil or watercolor, pen and ink or paint). 2. Be aware of following factors as well: audience, purpose, and context ? For whom was the work created? Why the work was created? When was the work created and by what it was possibly influenced? 3. More tips for analyzing audience: Photography, Art, Film: Consider the subject and style. Are there elements that would turn off, offend or shock some people? Do any features indicate that the “artist” is saying something socially, politically, or artistically that he or she imagines a general public might not find acceptable? Are there references or allusions to other works that could indicate a desire on the part of the artist to separate insiders from outsiders?

    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.
