Please read Chapter 3.8 “The Modern Aesthetic: Realism to Expressionism” (pp. 501-544) in your “Gateways to Art” textbook. Look at Henry O. Turner’s “Banjo Lesson” on page 517.
Next, read the attached Teacher-Made hand-out, ART CRITICISM (review the 5 Steps: 1. See; 2. Perceive; 3. Ask & Answer; 4. Reflect; 5. Know).
Art = Form + Theme+ Context + Personal Connection. Artworks that stick with us stay in our hearts and minds because we connect with them on a personal level. They speak to us about the world, ourselves, or something we’re going through. We remember them and they change us–how we think or experience the world, inspiring us or giving us a new lens to look through.
Next, discuss how “The Banjo Lesson” painting SPEAKS to YOU about your WORLD, YOURSELF, or something you are going through. If the work of art changed how you THINK or EXPERIENCE the world, talk about how it inspired you or gave you a new lens to look through. Post 300 words (minimum) to make your “argument” (remember, every good argument has at least two components, a “claim” and “evidence”).
