1. Describe - tell exactly what you see.
2. Analyze - use the elements/principles to reflect upon the art form.
3. Interpret - consider:
* What is the artist trying to say?
* What caused the artist to say it?
* What is the historical milieu that surrounds the work of art?
* Why was the work of art created in this particular style?
4. Elevate - How successful or important is the work of art?
2. This piece has a lightly shaded background. It contains a vase that has white highlights and a dark vase.
3. The artist is trying to show a flower vase that was in front of her, she thought it was really pretty. The shadows and highlights are trying to set a 2D effect. The highlights are also trying to show it's glass.
4. I feel like the piece is really plain. It could use something on the right. More highlights on the vase and more detail.
• The point of this class is to express yourself in my opinion. It's a way of life and helps you relax. It shows how to release your imagination and be creative. It makes you look at the world differently.
• I learned a lot from this class. I love the teacher and the friends that helped me with my piece along the way. I learned a lot about shading and how to express myself.
• The warm up that I've learned from the most is probably learning how to do water color and acrylic textures.
• The technique I used that really worked well is charcoal. It's really easy to use, and erases easy too. If you mess up, don't worry because you can blend it in and no one would even tell.
