DESCRIBE (What do you see?)
This stage is like taking inventory.
Try to figure out what the artist has done to achieve certain effects.
INTERPRET (What can you interpret?)
Try to figure out what the artwork is about. Your own perspectives, associations and experiences meet with THE ANALYSIS of the work of art. All art works are about something. Some art works are about color, their subject matter, and social or cultural issues. Some art works are very accessible — that is, relatively easy for the viewer to understand what the artist was doing. Other works are highly intellectual, and might not be as easy for us to readily know what the artist was thinking about.
EVALUATE (What does this mean to you?)
This is a culminating and reflecting activity. You need to come to some conclusions about the artwork based on all the information you have gathered and on your interpretations.
All homework is due at the START of class on the due date posted on the website.
LATE homework is homework that is turned in at the end of the class that it is due or the next art class = 1 grade lower
Homework turned in later then the following art class = ZERO
Homeworks are explained in class and Internet connectivity is not an excuse for not completing homework. The website is to aid you in your homework.
If you put in effort into a homework but it did not come out as you expected or you misunderstood the assignment: You may redo it for a better grade within one week.
Absent: You are responsible to find out what assignments you missed while absent. Generally 1 day will be given for each day missed to make up assignments. Write ABSENT next to your name on the back of the assignment.
