Write a narrative paper that is at least 1000 words in length (you are welcome to go over the word count limit), using at least 12-pt font. Your paper should compare and contrast your work to a collector’s artwork, demonstrating your research, personal reflection, and art making process. Some suggestions to help you begin writing are listed below. For further assistance on writing a narrative paper, please refer to additional resources in the Course Orientation.
Compare and contrast your work to a Collector’s work
- Identify the collector and the work that you have selected to review.
- Describe why you chose the work you did
- What is the relationship between the artist who inspired you and the collection?
- Explain what you find especially interesting, inspiring, or disturbing about this artist’s work.
- Discuss how the artist’s work relates to the ideas and goals of you own work.
- Discuss your collection and explain the story behind it: What makes your collection personal and what does it mean to you? What memories are attached to the work? What were your influences?
- Explain how you made your artwork and what techniques, materials, and concepts you used.
- Describe what is so important about the way the objects are installed and how they relate visually, spatially and conceptually to one another, to the Cabinet of Curiosities, and to previously covered chapters.
- Conduct personal researchof the artist and artwork you are discussing in your narrative. It’s crucial that you learn more about the artist than what is provided on the course website and reflect that knowledge in your writing.
- Review the history behind the Cabinets of Curiosities and discuss their imact on your Cabinet and personal collection
- What is the role of the three-dimensional objects in your cabinet?
- Discuss the formal and conceptual aspects of both artworks (subject matter, form and content). Use at least 10 vocabulary terms from the assigned reading and previous readings to demonstrate your cumulative knowledge. Make sure to type vocabulary in ALL CAPS.
- Follow the intro, body, and conclusion format to organize your writing. Tips on structuring your narrative can be found in the Course Orientation under “Creating an Outline”.
- Make sure to cite all of your sources (books, internet, etc) in a Works Cited/Bibliography page at the end of your narrative. You should have at least (3) reliable, scholarly sources such as books, art magazines, as well as online museums, art publications, etc. Wikipedia is not encouraged as one of your main sources. In order to get credit for the “citing” portion of the grading rubric, you must list all of your researched sources in the “Works Cited” page (even if you didn’t include any quotes from those sources in your writing). Please see directions on how to cite books and online sources in the Course Orientation.
- Please include your narrative’s word count at the end of your paper (ex: Word Count: 1067 words).
- Finally, thoughtfully select a meaningful title for your assignment.
When writing about your artwork, it is crucial to conduct a sufficient amount of research. Without research, you are limiting your understanding of art and ability to challenge yourself. With research, you accumulate appreciation for different forms of art which contribute to your ability to discuss your own artwork, as well as the work of other artists. An ongoing research is a major part of being an art student.
Your artwork description should be written in a narrative form, which means that it should contain an introduction, body, and conclusion. Begin by briefly introducing the subject matter, form and content of your work. In the body of your narrative discuss these in detail, combining them with research and personal opinions. Finalize your goals and intentions in the conclusion, stating the crucial accomplishments of the assignment. Your paper should flow from one topic to another. Imagine that you are writing your artwork description to someone who does not have any artistic background and training. Use detailed examples when discussing your work and that of other artists. Refrain from using slang, and always proof-read your papers for grammar and spelling mistakes.
