COLOR STUDY, DISCUSSION, and EVALUATION PAPER:
The Color Study will be a hands-on project to be completed by copying a master painting using magazine paper shards. Subject
matter will be derived from a list of paintings that will be viewed during the course of the semester. The image should be mounted on a stiff backing board
and the paper shards can be attached with glue. The Color Study
is worth 15% of the final semester grade and will be due February 15, 2006. Color accuracy and craftsmanship are a focus for evaluation of this work.
The Discussion Project will be a group project wherein a small group will discuss an issue related to art and report their discussion findings back to the class. One class will be set aside to begin the discussion, but students will need additional time to work through the issues. Each group will report their findings through a short 5-10 minute presentation. A short written report will also be submitted by March 27, 2006
The Evaluation paper will be a subjective evaluation of a piece
of art. Students should visit the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science
and pick a work to write about. Then, using terminology and insight gained
in the context of the course, write a 1500 word evaluation of the formal
and contextual attributes of the work. Additional research may be done
on the artist or content of the work. Non-traditional writing formats
will be accepted with permission of instructor. The mosaic and paper will
be 100 points each and will account for 15% of the final semester grade.
The Evaluation paper is due April 19, 2005.
The paper must have the following characteristics:
- an evaluation of the formal characteristics of the work
- an evaluation of the contextual characteristics of the work
