COMPARE & CONTRAST
Documentary films of varying lengths are being used in place of a textbook. Before beginning your submission, it is expected that all of the films that pertain to this assignment be viewed, and these have all been labeled as Compare/Contrast Film.
Comparing & Contrasting:
1. Use 2 separate documentary films. Choose 1 artwork from each film.
2. Make sure the 2 artworks are completely different mediums. Some examples: paint, graphite/pencil, charcoal, clay/ceramic, marble, bronze, glass, wood, etc.
3. Make sure the 2 artworks are not of the same type, meaning you cannot discuss 2 paintings despite one being acrylic and another oil, or 2 sculptures despite one being bronze and the other marble, etc. The idea is to discuss 2 artworks that obviously seem different at first glance.
4. Discuss how the 2 artworks are different both visually, thematically, and in their mediums/use of materials.
5. Discuss what makes the 2 artworks similar.
Do not go to Google for answers to the questions or supporting information. The comparing & contrasting experience is rooted in observation and comprehension. Some helpful tips while considering/discussing your chosen artworks from the documentary films may include: What is it you are seeing? What is it that is being said about the artworks? Despite being different, how might you bridge a connection?
If any portion of your entry is not yours, meaning you used/referred to other sources, your journal entry will receive a zero.
Writing your Submission:
Write a short essay that answers the above criteria in no more than 250 words.
Be sure to document which films you chose. In addition, you must not forget to provide the titles of each artwork and time stamp them accordingly from the film they appeared in (Riace Bronze at 12:16 in “Beneath the Calabrian Sea”). Sometimes the films can be sketchy with art piece titles, so this is security for backing you up. The purpose of this exercise is to promote critical thinking. Be sure to provide detailed and supportive answers.
The best method for entering your essays into canvas is to cut and paste them after they have been through spell checking and translating.

Discussion: UTILITY/ELECTRIC BOX HUNT
Many cities have developed ways in which to encourage public art and beautify their cities and streets. Often, utility/electric boxes around town are painted and decorated. At times, the artwork can be breathtaking, or provide some mind opening social commentary. The styles in which many of these boxes are painted and decorated is vast.
Find A Decorated Utility/Electric Box:
Taking some inspiration from Dave Van Patten, take a photo of a decorated utility/electric box from around town that you feel is inspiring. A photo that shows you standing besides it is preferred, but not required. Be sure to also mention where the utility/electric box is located in your thread.
Be sure to embed your image/s (just like in the demo below). DO NOT attach the image/s in word doc or pdf files. Attached images that require downloading for viewing will NOT be looked at and the discussion will earn a zero.
Tell us why you chose this utility/electric box.
What is it about the artwork that made an impression on you?
What do you feel makes it visually effective? Discuss the principles of design and elements of art that are responsible for the visual impact created in the artwork.
Tell us your interpretation of the imagery, including the theme you feel is covered.
Avoid going to Google for answers to the questions. Adding a little info from a source is OK, but I really want to hear your very own thoughts.
Your Discussion experience will come in three parts:
Part 1: Taking some inspiration from Dave Van Patten, take a photo of a decorated utility/electric box from around town that you feel is inspiring. A photo that shows you standing besides it is preferred, but not required. Be sure to also mention where the utility/electric box is located in your thread.
Embed the photo to your thread. Avoid using huge file sizes, they may not upload into Canvas.
Part 2: Write a short essay that answers the above questions and provide comments about your own viewing experience. Additions to your thread resulting from any added research is fine. But remember to stay on topic and answer the questions.
Part 3: Respond to a minimum of 2 other student Threads.
