Art & architecture “Art Criticism Theories.”

 For this segment, you will be adding a critique of your gallery pieces and explaining how and if they fit into each of the art criticism theories discussed in this course. Art criticism theories (formal, contextual, and expressive) help art historians and critics categorize art. An artwork will not represent a theory, but a theory can lead to a better understanding of the artwork. A. Begin by reviewing your Unit IV feedback and making any necessary revisions. B. Next, research the three art criticism theories listed in Chapter 5 of your textbook and the Unit V Lesson. Be sure to use APA format. C. Use the template slides labeled “Art Criticism Theories.” D. Complete three (3) slides, one for each of the art criticism theories: formal, contextual, and expressive. For each slide, address the following: 1. Describe the art criticism theory. 2. Tell why you feel this theory is the best fit for the artwork. 3. Tell how the theory explains one of your gallery artworks. 4. Explain how the purpose and structure of the work relate to this theory. Unit VI Assignment Art Gallery: Background For Unit VI of your art gallery presentation, you will be adding a written description of the background information on your artworks to your PowerPoint presentation. Be sure to review your Unit V feedback and make any necessary revisions. Next, research the background and details of your artworks using your textbook, the course content, and the CSU Online Library. For this segment, use the slides in the art gallery template labeled “Background.” You will need one for each artwork. You may include more than one idea on each slide, but please do not overload the slides with information. Be sure to address the following: A. Describe the time period of the artwork. B. Include information on the artist of the artworks. C. Include facts that relate to your selected art pieces. For example, if your artwork depicts a war, it may be helpful to give information about that war. Be sure to use APA format during this assignment. It is important to give credit to the source that provided your information. At the end of a sentence where you have information from a source, add a citation. The citation should consist of the author or authors’ last name(s) and the year of publication. For our textbook, it would be (Frank, 2014). If it is a quotation, add a page or paragraph number. For example, an in-text citation for a quote from your textbook would look like this: (Frank, 2014, p. 119). Place the full reference for the source on the References slide at the end. Unit VIII Course Project Art Gallery: Commentary For Unit VIII, the last segment of your art gallery course project, you will be adding a comprehensive statement to your PowerPoint presentation and finalizing your segments from the previous units. You will submit the entire presentation, including those portions from previous units, for a final grade. Begin by reviewing your Unit VI feedback and making any necessary revisions. In your comprehensive statement, present the last words on your art gallery. Summarize your thoughts and convey the larger implications of your art gallery. This is an opportunity to succinctly answer the “So what?” question by placing the presentation within the context of research about the topic you have investigated. Be sure to demonstrate the importance of your ideas. Do not be shy. The comprehensive statement offers you a chance to elaborate on the significance of your findings. For this segment, use the slides in the art gallery template labeled “Comprehensive Statement.” A minimum of three PowerPoint slides are required; however, you are welcome to add as many as you feel you need. You may include more than one idea on each slide, but please do not overload the slides with information. Be sure to address the following in your comprehensive statement: A. Describe what you learned about art in general. B. Describe what you learned about the art criticism theory. C. Describe what you learned about art’s role in society. D. Citations and references are not a requirement for this section, but if you choose to use outside sources, they must be cited and referenced accordingly. E. Although you do not need to add any new sources for the commentary section, you will need to ensure all APA guidelines are followed for the presentation as a whole.
