Re: Samples of describe and anaylse art essays

Somewhere out there, there is a list that fits on one page, that is
helpful to anyone trying to learn how to discuss art. It has the art
elements and principles listed, and below each one, there are
descriptive words that can be used to discuss each element and
principle. It gives kids a base to start from when they are describing
E&P. Pretty soon they won't need the list any more. Chicago Art
Institute has a list of questions to fit each category; describe,
analyze, interpret, judge. Next time I'm back at school (yes, I'm
off!!!!!) I'll look for mine and send a copy to Judy so she can post
them on IAD. We have some great resources for our art a la carte parent
docents to use to guide them along these lines.
