For this week's critical analysis, you will navigate to the Elements of Design tutorial on the class website, which can be found HERE, or by hovering over Technical/Tutorials at the top of this page.
On this page, you will note several different visual examples (photographs, paintings, sculptures, etc.) for each element of design. Your task is to choose 1 example within each element and write 1 paragraph explaining how the given element is incorporated into the image/painting/sculpture/etc. You will do this for each element of art, making 8 paragraphs total. Your paragraph must be 4 sentences minimum per paragraph. When you are writing, be sure to list the name of the artist whose work you are referencing.
Here is an example:
This is a photograph by an artist named Stephen Shore. This image uses the design element of space because space is implied within the billboard itself, but also the area around the billboard. The billboard shows a depictions of a mountain range landscape, suggesting infinite space, even though it is enclosed by a rectangular frame. There is also infinite space surrounding the billboard, as the clouds, landscape, and mountain range reach off into the distance.
Your analyses will be graded on the following criteria:
