These questions can serve as the starting point for your discussions during the week. They are “thought starters,” so that you can explore some ideas associated with the discussion board and unit topics. Answers are not required, and should not be submitted with your required assignment. Answers are not graded.
1. What are your impressions of a “renaissance” occurring in a culture?
2. What are your impressions of the term “Middle Ages”?
B. Required Discussion Board assignment.
Two criteria used to judge the quality of a work are craft (how well an artwork was made) and communication (the uniqueness of the artist’s vision and its message or meaning). Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonardo da Vinci were considered masters of these two qualities. Compare a work of art from each artist using the following for discussion:
Post the images you have selected.
Describe what each work intended to communicate. How does each of the works communicate its message?
Describe SPECIFIC techniques that each artist used to convey meaning. For example: composition, color, perspective, chiaroscuro, idealism, sfumato, gesture, size, symbolism, allegory.
Be sure to identify where these techniques are used in the works you discuss. You may use the Internet to find the artwork.
You are required to comply with APA style format for quotations, internal citations, and a reference list. For additional information and resources on APA, visit the APA section of the Library, available under “Library Features.”
