Assignment: So far, this course has covered Class & Visual Culture. Both of these chapters have distinct artistic ideas, styles, social & historical developments that involve visual art. I have provided 3 images for you. With each image, explain 1 development, idea, or event that you feel had the greatest impact on the art production of that image. Please make sure to also include the importance of each image (subject & meaning) & the medium.
Minimum length: 2 – 3 page essay – double spaced. Prior to posting, change your format to single space with double spacing between paragraphs. Then, copy & paste your essay your post into Canvas. This will make it easier for me to read – less scrolling.
Sources: the textbook & the Instructor PDF files. This means that if you quote a passage from the textbook, it MUST be cited. This goes for the instructor PDF files.
How to Avoid Plagiarism…â€¨ Remember, your post is in your own words. DO NOT copy the information, word for word, from the textbook or the Instructor PDF files. If you do this, you will receive a ZERO for this Assignment. In addition, if you look up information on a website, you must also rewrite it in your own words. I will only accept websites that are scholarly written – this does not include Wikipedia, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, blogs or childrenâ€™s books. Do not Google your answer.
