Look at the work and plainly describe what you see. Imagine you are having to describe the artwork to someone over the phone. Tell the name of the artwork you are discussing, the name and brief biography of the artist, any dimensions
given of the size of the artwork, media/materials used in the artwork, and the date/time period the artwork was created. School or movement or cultural traditional artist and/or artwork belonged to.
2) FORMAL ANALYSIS
In this section you will describe the art elements and principles of composition present in the work. This section of your paper should be at least 2 pages long. Use adjectives to help describe the art elements present in the work. To what
degree is each element used? Are the lines thin, thick, organic or geometric, etc? Are the colors bright, dull,complementary or analogous? Be as specific as possible and avoid beingy/ague. Don’t say that there are 4 colors and 3 shapes in the work- explain WHERE in the work these elements are found and what their effect is on the total composition. Are certain colors found only in one area of the work or throughout? Is the same or multiple textures used
throughout the work? Describe the relationships between the elements that you see- their location, size, shape, color, texture, space. Which compositional elements are larger, darker, brighter, closer than others. Let your thinking follow this format throughout your analysis.
If the elements of art are the main ingredients in a work of art then the principles of design are the recipe or how the artist chose to mix their own personal stew together. This is the visual composition of the work or how the
artist chooses to physically divide or construct the image area. Is the work horizontally or vertically oriented, symmetrical or asymmetrical? Are there any patterns, repetitions, overall similarities or great contrasts which stand out immediately to the eye, if so describe where these design principles occur and how they lead and move your eye around the images composition. Be sure to explain and describe based on your own personal observations and in your OWN
WORDS how ALL of the art elements and principles of composition are utilized in yourartwork. What main visual elements or principle unify the image.
In this section you are to describe the content of the work. The elements and principles of design are the formal and structural aspect of a work of art. This doesn’t speak necessarily if at all of the content or meaning of a work of art. In the interpretation section you will answer the questions of what the artist was trying to communicate. What is the purpose of the work? What is the story and mood of the work? What symbolism, visual metaphors or iconography is
employed? How do you think the artist felt making the work?
In this last section you get to critically assess what you think the aesthetic value of the work is. Do you honestly enjoy or dislike the work? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Please don’t generalize, be specific. Communicate if you think the artist
was successful, if the work is original, well-crafted and designed. Use the previous three sections to support and back your opinions and belief about the work and then write your final analysis in this section.
