Write about your favorite art “ism.” You should write an opinion about why you like the Pre-Raphaelites, the Impressionists, the Post-Impressionists, the Nabis, Art Nouveau, Art Deco (sadly, covered in book only. Only touched upon in this class this semester), Cubism, Surrealism, Futurism, Abstract Expressionism etc. mid-1800s to 1990s. Recommended: First paragraph about “ism” and why it’s your favorite (okay to use some “I” statements – don’t overdo it). You may use “me,” “we,” “they” – not a formal paper – it is an opinion paper. Define features of the “ism” (a source is good here). Second paragraph: Include some artists that are part of the ISM and which artists are your favorite. Third and fourth paragraphs: Write about two examples (no more) and why they are excellent examples of the artistic style. Describe color, form, why it is effective, etc. How does the artist(s) fit in with the group – leader, follower? Influenced by? Final paragraph, conclusion. Include a photo of image (black & white okay). Carefully proofread. Then, proofread again. Is there in-text citation (1-2 sources HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)? Work Cited page? Yes.
