You will write a concise 750 – 900 word short essay based on a work of art that you actually view and not a reproduction. This is not a research paper, but is a paper based on your own observations and original thought. I expect you to use and integrate key concepts and terminology from class.

For this Reflection, you must visit a local museum or gallery and write a short paper in which you apply the Visual Elements and Design Principles to describe a work of art. As usual, I’m looking forward to reading your original ideas and insights.
