Art Gallery: Background
For Unit VI of your art gallery presentation, you will be adding a written description of the background information on your artworks to your PowerPoint presentation.
ART 1301, Art Appreciation I 5
Be sure to review your Unit V feedback and make any necessary revisions. Next, research the background and details of your artworks using your textbook, the course content, and the CSU Online Library.
For this segment, use the slides in the art gallery template labeled “Background.” You will need one for each artwork. You may include more than one idea on each slide, but please do not overload the slides with information. Be sure to address the following:
Describe the time period of the artwork.
Include information on the artist of the artworks.
Include facts that relate to your selected art pieces. For example, if your artwork depicts a war, it may be helpful to
give information about that war.
Be sure to use APA format during this assignment. It is important to give credit to the source that provided your information. At the end of a sentence where you have information from a source, add a citation. The citation should consist of the author or authors’ last name(s) and the year of publication. For our textbook, it would be (Frank, 2014). If it is a quotation, add a page or paragraph number. For example, a quote from your textbook would look like this: (Frank, 2014, p. 119). Place the full reference for the source on the References slide at the end.
Please submit your full presentation thus far, which should include the five artworks and the description of their visual elements, design principles, the art criticism theories, and the segment for this unit.
