art assignment

I don’t know how to handle this Art & Design question and need guidance.

The textbook, chapter guides, and Khan Academy page provide a very broad overview of art history. This assignment offers the opportunity to investigate a work of art in detail.

Step 1: Select a work of art to research.:

  • analyze the content and any iconography that the work depicts
  • examine the artist’s background
  • address the style and research information on the movement or artistic circle the artist belongs to (if any)
  • investigate the context – what historical, religious, cultural, social, and/or economic events are important to understand this work?
  • consider the historical significance—was this work of art influenced by something, or did it influence future works of art?

You’ll need to cite 2 reliable resources other than your textbook. (Blogs,, etc. are not credible sources.)

Step 2: Write a minimum of 350 words about your chosen art work and post it to the Discussion Board.

  • Include a good quality image of your chosen work that is clearly labeled.
  • Include size, media, date completed in your paragraph or in your label.
  • Based on your research, discuss pertinent information about your chosen art work. Avoid the overly general, boring stuff, and look for things you find genuinely interesting.

Step 3: Respond to a classmate in a meaningful way.

Deadline: December 2, by 9:00 PM
