Using the same work of art (or architecture) that you researched and discussed in your Research Essay, you will create a Research PowerPoint. In this PowerPoint, you will compile the important points of your research into a presentation for your classmates.

Lead a bullet-point discussion on style, context, content, purpose of your chosen work and offer some insight into the use of formal analysis. During your discussion, you should not only introduce the basic facts of the work but give consideration to the following:

Identify the artist/culture who created the work. Who made this? Why was it made? What do we know about its creation and purpose?
Identify the period and place it was created. How do factors like the historical context and location shape the meaning of the work?
Describe the artwork in detail. Utilize formal analysis in your description. Give attention to the materials and techniques the artist used to effectively communicate their ideas.
Identify and describe the style of the artwork e.g., High Classical or Hellenistic. Remember that in discussing style, you are often referring to a period style or regional style.
Choose any application to create your presentation, but it must be in the format of a slide show and saved as a .ppt or .pptx file. Your presentation must include both images and bullet points to explain your artwork.

Cite your sources. Research findings must be properly cited and must be properly credited in your last slide (just as they were in your Research Essay.) Please use MLA (Links to an external site.) format.

The first 5 or so slides should be describing both the content and the form of the artwork in detail.

Use at least 5 terms learned in class (ie. sculpture in the round, complementary colors, abstraction, etc.) and possibly provided some background about the artist or culture (but not more than 1 slide).
In the next 5 or so slides, you should talk about the work’s context. The rest of the project should be spent revealing new insights into the work that goes beyond the textbook. This is the essential findings of your research.

You can show historical photographs or diagram material that help to illustrate your points. Feel free to also incorporate videos into your slides.

I suggest the following organization:


Slide 1: Title slide

Slide 2: An image of your selected artwork (with artist, title, date, location)

Slide 3: Bullet points* describing your artwork

Slide 4: More bullet points describing your artwork

Slide 5: Image of detail(s)of your artwork, or background of the artist

Slide 6: Bullet points describing the significance of the work

Slide 7: Image comparison artworks

Slide 8: Bullet points describing the comparison

Slide 9: More bullet points describing the comparison

Slide 10: Other images (different views of your artwork or historical images related to its context)

Slide 11: Bullet points summarizing your major ideas

Slide 12: Footnotes/Works Cited
