Description: Describe what you see using objective, factual words, Elements of Art- - i.e., Line, Shape, Color, Value, Texture, Space, etc... - What subjects do you recognize? - What media and techniques did the artist use?
Analysis: Look for Relationships by switching your vocab to the Principles of Art- - Emphasis - is there a dominant element or one that you see first? Why? - Balance - Is there a special balance, or "weight," among the elements? - Proportion - Do the proportions look normal, ideal, or unusual? Why?\ - Pattern - Are elements repeated to create a pattern? Where? How? - Rhythm/Movement - What visual paths of movement do your eyes follow? Why? - Unity - What elements bring together, or unify, many parts of the design? - Variety - What elements add variety or diversity? Why?
Interpretation: Use the information gathered to tell what the work means to you. Use analogies and language with adjectives and adverbs. Example, "the lively, angular shapes seem to be dancing." State main themes, or hypothesis, that could explain what the artist wanted you to see and appreciate. - What does the work make you think or feel when you look at it? - Does the work remind you of other things you have experienced? - How does the work relate to other ideas or events in the world and/or in your classes?
Judgement/Evaluation: Give your educated opinion on the work's achievement or failure. Always consider the specific project criteria. - What parts of the work make you feel it is a success or failure? - What criteria could you list that would help others judge/evaluate this work? - How unique or original is the work? Why do you feel this way?
