creating rhythm and unity in which a small idea or single element appears again and again. Click icon to add picture

Rhythm Indicates movement by the repetition of elements or objects. Created by repeating positive spaces separated by negative spaces.

shading of colors that create a sense of space or distance Unity The principle of design associated

with the arrangement of the elements of art to create a coherent whole Combination of similar colors, lines, shapes, etc. Types of Perspective Aerial perspective Technique

of creating an illusion of depth by depicting distant objects as paler, less detailed, and (usually) bluer than near objects. Frans Koppelaar

Landscape near Bologna One Point One vanishing point is typically used for roads, railroad tracks, or buildings viewed so that the front is directly facing the viewer.

Two-point Used to draw the same objects as one-point perspective, rotated with two vanishing points looking at the corner of a house, or looking at two forked roads shrink into the distance

Three-point Usually used for buildings seen from above or below using three vanishing points. This third vanishing point will be below the ground or in the sky above.

Abstract Non-objective Art Criticism Georges Seurat (1884-1886) A Sunday on La Grande Jatte Oil on canvas

207.5 308.1 cm (81.7 121.3 in) Georges Seurat (1884-1886) A Sunday on La Grande Jatte Oil on canvas 207.5 308.1 cm (81.7 121.3 in) Art Criticism Step 1 - Description

Title/artist/date/size/ media/process/where (if known) Subject/objects Any info that you may know about the artist Step 1 - Description The painting shows a group of people standing around a beach or lake. The

clothes that the people are wearing are an older style. The skirts the women are wearing are large, and some of the men are wearing top hats. A man is sitting on the front left side wearing a baseball hat and a sleeveless shirt. There is a woman and a man on the right side, who are standing in the shade, with some animals around them, including a

dog. There are a number of people sitting around and looking at the water. Some of the women have umbrellas, although it is not raining. Some of the people are in the shade. Georges Seurat (1884-1886) A Sunday on La Grande Jatte Oil on canvas

207.5 308.1 cm (81.7 121.3 in) Art Criticism Step 2 - Analysis Based upon the MAIN elements/principles used not all of them Give a description of how those elements/principles are being used.

Give insight on why you think the artist used them in the manner you described above Step 2 - Analysis The painting shows a contrast of light and dark colors. The artist creates space by having the beach and people go back in the

painting. There are no real lines in the painting because it is painted in a pointillist style. The artist shows texture in the dresses and on the grass. The artist uses different color values for the clothes and on the grass to show the difference between the shaded area and sunny area. The painting shows

a realistic scene. Georges Seurat (1884-1886) A Sunday on La Grande Jatte Oil on canvas 207.5 308.1 cm (81.7 121.3 in) Art Criticism Step 3 - Interpretation

Describe what you think is the mood and/or meaning (both would be best, but only one, if well stated, will suffice) Step 3 - Interpretation I think that the painting is about people gathering

around outside on a nice day and looking at the water. Maybe they are all there on a weekend day. There are lots of people in the picture, some are sitting down and maybe having a picnic. There are some boats in the distance on the water and maybe the they

are watching a boat race. Georges Seurat (1884-1886) A Sunday on La Grande Jatte Oil on canvas 207.5 308.1 cm (81.7 121.3 in) Art Criticism Step 4 - Judgement

Give your opinion based on the three qualities of aesthetics (the nature and appreciation of beauty) 1. Literal basically can you tell what it is and are objects correctly represented 2. Formal are the elements/principles youve discussed used well

3. Emotional are you satisfied with the emotional response you have to the art Step 4 - Judgment I think that this is a good painting because the artist uses a different style to create the image and uses

a lot of different colors. The contrast between the shaded area and the light area shows that it is a sunny day. The artist uses different colors and values, and creates a unique texture through his style of painting.

Summary Remember your 5-6 sentence summary (since this was a lot of notes and ideas) Practice Art Criticism As

a group (your row) you will need one sheet of paper You will be assigned an image to criticize For your image, use a device to look it up and go through each step of the criticism process and give detailed reflections you will have 30 minutes You will present your responses and
