Art 101 –
Paper 1 (Chapters 1-4)
You are to respond to the prompt found below in a three-page paper. Please read through all of the instructions that follow before beginning the assignment.
Prompt: Discuss three artworks, created by three different civilizations that we have studied, that reflect on humans’ relationship to animals. You must describe and analyze each artwork with special attention to how the animal(s) (animal hybrids, and/or human animal hybrids) and humans are rendered and how the humans and animals interact with one another. Then address the greater message each artwork reveals about the values/beliefs/customs of the civilization responsible for its production.
Artwork selection: Read the prompt carefully and select the artworks you write on thoughtfully. Each of the three artworks you select for discussion must be taken from a different Chapter PowerPoint posted to a course module (be sure to double check the Power Points as each one contains only a selection of artworks from a textbook chapter). We have covered Chapters 1-4. You may not discuss any of the artworks you have already written about in the Chapter 1-4 Assignments. Properly identify each artwork discussed (include the title and date given for the artwork on the PowerPoint). Your discussions of the artworks must include succinct descriptions and analyses of the formal properties and content, in addition to what is known about the context in which they were created.
References: Your paper must be phrased in your own words and it should build on information found in the textbook and course assignments (you may not copy and paste from course assignments; new text must be generated for this assignment). You may conduct additional research, but only reference the following credible sources: books, scholarly articles, museum websites, and Khan Academy.
Formatting guidelines: Your paper must be at least 3 full pages of text (and no more than 4 full pages of text) and contain an introduction with a thesis statement, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. It is to be typed in Times New Roman 12 point font and double-spaced, with one-inch margins. Do not write in first person. If you quote or closely paraphrase, please keep it to a minimum, and include proper citations in MLA or The Chicago Manual of Style format. Attach a bibliography to the end of your paper. Proofread your work for typos and grammatical errors. You do not need to upload reproductions of the artworks.
Please follow the instructions carefully as failure to do so will negatively affect your grade on the assignment.
