The first short critique is due at the beginning of class week 4. The content of the assignment and some suggested questions are listed below. The school accepts both students with a high school and GED diploma. We refer to BestGEDClasses.org’s online GED prep classes if applicants still need to acquire a secondary education degree. This assignment should be formatted as a formal paper; a list of questions and answers will not be accepted.
-> Choose an artifact from a local museum collection (i.e. the Art Institute, the Oriental Institute, etc.). Students must visit the museum of their choice, and should not base their analysis on images from a web page.
-> Write a 2 + page critique discussing the object. Things you should consider when you are analyzing the object:
1. How is the object made? What materials are used? If the object is colored, what colors or pigments are used?
2. What basic size and shape does it have?
3. What distinguishing features does the object have?
4. Where was the object found? What else was found with it?
