One four-page paper will require all students to virtually visit a visual art museum, or view a streaming theater, music, or dance performance. If you are in doubt as to whether an event is appropriate, ask your instructor BEFORE you select it.
The key elements to critical thinking expected from this written assignment include:
use of careful, precise language to describe the artwork observed;
an integration of descriptive and analytical statements about the object or performance that steer the reader;
the demonstration of an awareness of the elements, principles, and art medium in use;
clear reasoning about interpretations drawn from the looking/engaging process;
presentation of alternative questions raised by the space or object when appropriate;
use of interpretive approaches of the humanities to engage with the object.
PAPER STRUCTURE AND REQUIREMENTS:
For this paper, you are asked to carefully document your experience and write a prolonged analysis of a single artwork or performance. Strong papers will blend personal response and reflection with critical analysis. Review the Organizing an Essay file before you begin writing.
A four-page paper asks you to both evaluate an art experience and describe your feelings in response to it. Essays should follow proper formatting including a clear introduction with a stated thesis, an appropriate flow around that central thesis, and a well-structured conclusion.
Papers should address the following:
A description of the art event you have chosen. This should be no longer than one page in length.
This includes the entire production for theater, music, and dance performances.
You will focus on a single artwork if looking at visual art.
An identification of three noteworthy features about the performance or artwork with an explanation of why these details were noteworthy. This should be about one page in length.
How did you respond to the work or performance? This is an affective response to the emotions or feelings brought on by the work. Do you think your particular response was the goal of the artist or performer? Specifically, what about the work triggered that response? This should be about one page in length.
Offer a brief evaluation of your chosen work or performance. Be sure to explain your reasoning. Comparisons to other similar experiences might be helpful but are not necessary. This should be about one page in length.
All students are required to submit proof of their experience in the form of a photograph or screen shot. This should be embedded into the paper. Failure to do so will result in the loss of one letter grade (10 points).
Any student found plagiarizing or colluding will receive a zero grade for this assignment.
PAPERS THAT DO NOT MEET THE ABOVE GUIDELINES WILL RECEIVE A ZERO.

No cover page is necessary and a reproduction of the work need not be included.
In the top right corner of the first page include your name, date, and section number single spaced.

Papers should be uploaded to Canvas as Word .doc or .docx files. You are allowed multiple submissions, in case your upload fails. Any issues with Canvas should be reported to the HCC Live Help Desk, not your instructor.
Students are encouraged to submit their work before the deadline in case there are any problems. Last minute computer/Canvas/etc. issues are not excuse for late assignments. Late papers will not be accepted.
