Thank you very much. This is great now. Appreciate all your help and revisions. Thank you once again! You did a wonderful job.
Your critique should be presented as professionally as possible. It must be double-spaced, 12 point, Times New Roman font (no bold type), with correct spelling, punctuation and grammar. Do not put extra spacing between paragraphs.
The paper must include a title page, plus 1.5 to 2.5 pages of text, (not to exceed 4 pages), and a Works Cited page. The MLA format should be used. You may use online sources for the MLA style. (Google: OWL at Purdue) It is not necessary to include the image of the work of art you are analyzing, but it is fine if you do. If you include an image, use a separate page after the title page and before your critique text. Do not include an image on the title page. You will be required to use at least one citation and a Works Cited page for this critique.
20 points will be deducted if your critique is not 1.5 to 2.5 pages of text.
This is a strict requirement!
Your critique must be submitted as an attachment through SafeAssign on Bblearn. This is located below this assignment under Exams and Critiques—look for the green checkmark. The critique file must be in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) format only.
Late hard copies will not be accepted. Remember that papers that we cannot open will not be graded. No re-writes will be allowed!
There is a link to a visual image of this. (12 point font, Times New Roman) Do not attach the title page separately from the rest of the critique. Do not include an image on the title page.
The title page should contain:
Remember that titles of art works, like book titles, need to be italicized or underlined. This includes when you state the title on the title page and in the text of your paper.
Analysis of the Work of Art:
Your analysis of the works of art you have chosen to write about should include a formal, analytic description of the work as well as a personal interpretation. In all, the analysis must have 5 main sections: Description, Medium, Style, Elements & Principles, and Personal Interpretation.
1. Choose a sculpture from the choices given on the link provided. The first paragraph of your paper should be a detailed description of the sculpture you have chosen to analyze. These descriptions must be thorough enough that the reader-graders should be able to visualize the works based on what you write. Is the environment around the sculpture important?
2. In the second paragraph, describe the medium (sculpting material) used in the work of art you are analyzing. The description of each medium should also include your opinion regarding why the artist chose the particular medium he/she used in the work of art. For example, one artist may choose to cast a sculpture in bronze for durability, while another artist may choose to model a piece in soft, malleable clay because it is more direct and expressive. Explain how the chosen medium enhances the statement the artist makes in the work you analyze.
3. In the third paragraph, analyze the style of the sculpture. Is it realistic, idealistic, abstract, or non-objective? Discuss when the work you have chosen to write about was produced. You may wish to provide a short background on the artist. Remember to use citation. You must discuss the time period in which the sculpture was created and use an in-text citation and citation page using the MLA style. What does this work express about the time and culture in which it was created?
4. The fourth paragraph of your critique should be an analysis of the formal elements and principles of design used in this work of art. Remember, you must discuss at least four elements or principles and use them with the correct meanings. Your vocabulary should use terms for 3-D art. This is worth 20 points of your grade.
5. Lastly, please give your personal interpretation and opinion of the sculpture you have chosen. Explain why you chose this particular work from those available. Discuss such matters as: What is it about the work that appeals to you or displeases you? How does this work make you feel? Does the work evoke emotions, such as laughter, boredom, disgust, delight? Why?
Please see the grading rubric for a clear outline of what must be included in your critique, and the point values assigned to each section.
Please note: If you use direct quotes or information drawn from research sources or paraphrasing them, those sources must be cited in-text, and in a Works Cited page in the MLA Citation Style.If you do not cite quotations or the source(s) of specific information, you are plagiarizing.
I do not accept Wikipedia as a source!
