Visit a virtual gallery or museum and choose a work of art to critique. Visually analyze the work of art and critique it based on the visual elements of art (line, shape, color, etc. – use your lecture notes), principles of design (rhythm, composition, balance, etc. – use your lecture notes), subject matter, content, and function. What is the medium? Who is the artist? What is the title and what was the date when it was created?Next, choose a work of art we have studied in class, and conduct a visual analysis of it. Include the visual elements (line, shape, color, texture, etc.), principles of design (rhythm, composition, balance, etc.), function, subject matter, and content. What is the medium? Who is the artist? What is the title and what was the date when it was created? Compare your virtual art gallery or museum choice with the work you choose from class. Describe why it is an interesting comparison – the works of art must have something in common, whether it is the subject matter, the content, the medium, the artist, or the function. Determine which work of art is more appealing or effective. Use at least 5 vocabulary words from lecture to describe the work of art at the gallery or museum and 5 vocabulary words to describe the other work of art from lecture. This exercise is intended for you to apply concepts and vocabulary learned in class to a work of art in a gallery or museum. Go look at some works of art and enjoy yourself!
