Art 1 – Art Appreciation – Due 5/21


Watch this award-winning film short titled “Art Appreciation” and consider the ideas presented.

What makes something art?

What is art?

What is good art?

What makes meaning in art?

Who makes the meaning, the artist or the viewer?

In your sketchbook comments, thoughtfully discuss at least 3 of these questions. You may provide specific examples of art to support your ideas. Next week, you will be sharing your ideas in class.

In lieu of the weekly hour sketchbook drawing, use your time to complete any missing blog/sketch homework from this quarter. Label and attach a post-it note to each past due sketchbook homework page. Sketchbooks are due Tuesday 5/26.


Extra credit option: For one sketch or blog notes credit, visit the 60th Annual High School Art Show before May 24th. During your visit, draw 3 thumbnail sketches of your favorite pieces that you would award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Art League directions and hours: Santa Cruz Art League
