Individual Project 2 Art.

Individual Project 2 Art.

This assignment has 2 parts.

Part 1

When you look at ancient art, particularly ancient sculpture, you see progression in how the body in motion is represented. For this assignment, find 3 different

sculptures, all from the ancient period (created between 30,000 BCE and 500 CE), which show progression of how the body is depicted in motion. For example, your first

sculpture may be largely stationary, the second shows some motion, while the third shows an active body.

You may choose examples of sculpture from any of the following museums:

A New York art museum
A Paris museum
Select galleries in a Washington, DC museum
A Boston Museum

Paste images of all 3 sculptures into a Word document, and include details about each work: the title of each sculpture, the artist (if known), the year made, the

materials used, and the size of the work. Be sure to include a reference for each work, showing which museum it was found in. Present 2 or 3 paragraphs for each work

that clearly describe what the viewer sees and the content of each work. Finally, choose 3 adjectives (for each work) that express the core ideas of what the works

were intended to communicate or convey to the viewer.

Part 2

Create a simple drawing of each sculpture. Draw a line down each work to indicate the center of balance. Use arrows or lines with arrows to indicate the direction of

motion and movement within the sculpture. Scan or photograph your drawings and paste them into the Word document from Part 1. You can insert images into documents by

placing the cursor where you want the image to be, going to “Insert,” then choosing “Picture,” and selecting the picture from your computer. Be sure to scan or

photograph your drawing first and upload it to your computer.

Part 3

For each sculpture that you have chosen, choose a photograph, cartoon, movie poster, or any other image which uses the same stance, or bears remarkable similarity to

the sculpture you chose in Part 1. Present at least 1 of these modern-day equivalents, with appropriate comments discussing any relevant details.
