1) First paragraph: Students must give the name of the artist, title, date of the work, and medium, and list the museum or gallery where the student viewed it. Students must then describe the artwork in their own words as accurately and vividly as possible.
2) Second paragraph: Students must respond to the artwork. What is the intellectual or conceptual content of the work? What is it about?
3) Third paragraph: Students must justify their responses, and attempt to use the philosophical terms, techniques, and questions from the course readings. That is, defend your response by applying what we’re reading, reflecting upon your experiences, and using your own powers of reason.
