Need Some Ideas?

So, you are selecting one of your works of art for stage 5 and writing a more in-depth essay. You can include the information you wrote in stage 4 about the one artwork then expand on it; possibly it can serve as an overview or introductory statement. Or, you can mix the content from 4 within the in-depth content for 5. One strong direction will be to bring in an outside and contemporary artworks or works that would make a great comparative study and help to progress your narrative and connections between the past and the present. Or, you could further discuss the elements and principles of art focusing on a particular element or principle. Or, possibly talk about the iconography more extensively than the short descriptions written for Stage 4.

Deliverables:

  • 2 Page commentary focused on one work of art in proper MLA format.
