Course Objective(s):

CO-7: Demonstrate the ability to locate and incorporate art historical research sources in a scholarly paper.
C0-8: Examine an artist’s biography and artistic production.


Your 4 SLIDE Power Point Presentation is due at the end of Week 7. Visit the APUS online library, look at the course guides and optionally use the “Ask the Librarian” resource to help you locate scholarly references. They have electronic rights to JSTOR, which is a journal storage database and other data bases.

Choose one artist or architect that is included in any week of our course lessons, readings, or other areas. In this essay, fully discuss the artist and two art samples. Your paper should include:

Optional Cover Sheet

2 page biography of the artist/architect.
A description, formal analysis, and interpretation of 1 work of art/architecture by that artist (2 pages each).
A Bibliography listing 5 to 6 sources.

It is best to choose an artist we have studied in the class, but it doesn’t have to be. Do not include any artwork that you have already written about in class. Your analysis should be 2 pages in length and cannot be a work of art we have discussed in Forums. The analysis portion of this assignment must follow the Writing a Critique format you used for your Museum Paper.

Here is a summary of what you will submit:

Introductory Slide

A 2 page/slide biography of your artist
A 2 page/slide description, formal analysis, and interpretation of the one work of art
Include a Reference list properly citing 5 to 6 reference cited in the MLA citation style.
See the Attached “Creating a Term Paper Using Power Point” pdf file.

DO NOT FORGET: Use your Writing a Critique Art Notes that is in your Week 1 Lesson for the analysis which includes information for description formal analysis.

Use the Required Reading Videos and Resources in Lesson Two to help you with this paper and the Museum Paper.

Wikipedia note: It is an unjuried source, meaning that anyone can post there, even those who know nothing about the subject. AMU/APUS has a great library for source material. Start there.
