In this class you are being introduced to the formal elements of visual expression as well as its content across cultures and time-periods. This paper is meant to be a personal expression of what you have learned in the first chapters we have studied (5-8).
Find something personally relevant, (a passion, a major, career, etc) and apply what you have learned to that. Select 3-5 works of art from these chapters and organize them around 1 aspect of your life, whether it is a career, a personal interest or an important idea.
Here are some examples of successful papers in the past. One student had a passion for skateboarding. The student related 3 specific works of art from the chapters we studied to not only the aesthetics of certain logos and designs, but also the different styles of skating. Another student was a fashion major and related two lines which were recently released and how they were influenced by specific artworks and how those fashions related to the themes we covered.
You will write a paper in 3-5 double spaced 12 point font pages discussing that idea while relating concepts and artworks from the first 8 chapters to it.
