Mini Comparative Study

Mini Comparative Study (CS): Compare and contrast the artworks of at least 2 different artists. Preferably of similar subject matter from 2 different cultures and or time periods.


Use the sections and the guiding questions in the chart below to help your CS. Use the art vocabulary link to ensure consistent use of terminology throughout your CS. Cite your sources!


The final format of your CS can be done in a Venn diagram as the example, written in your journal or submitted digitally in any format that communicates all of the different sections of the chart below.
