Evaluating an Artifact

Humans are art making creatures. From the evocative hunting depictions of our ancient ancestors to modern dance, humans have reacted to their environment by painting, singing, dancing, writing, and recording the things they encounter. In this week’s assignment, you will be asked to select an artifact to analyze. Make sure that you choose something that really resonates with you, but also make sure that you would not mind sharing it with the members of the class. Understand that this is an academic workspace, and select an image, poem, or song that you would be comfortable sending to the entire class. You are free to select any object that is shareable electronically with your classmates.Photo credit: Microsoft Corporation. (Producer). MP900309017 [photo of brushes and art supplies].

You will be asked to analyze the artifact that you select and to describe why the piece was selected. Please choose something that you would not mind others critiquing.

Make sure that you are comfortable with the piece being viewed and analyzed by other members of the class.In this Assignment you will identify and analyze an artifact of your choice.
