Thanks to businesses, foundations, and thousands of arts enthusiasts, ArtsGreensboro financially supports more than 50 arts organizations and projects each year, connects the public to arts and entertainment, and helps provide support to the area arts scene through grants, marketing support and other important initiatives and services. ArtsGreensboro advocates for the arts in a variety of ways on both local and state levels. Each spring, they seek volunteers and members of the arts community to participate in Arts Day — a two-day effort led by Arts NC to bring delegations from around the state to meet one-on-one with legislators and request funding for the arts through the NC Arts Council.
Sample student papers visual descriptions The CCNY students who wrote these papers were given a variation of the assignment below.
In all cases, they were told to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and select one work on display in the galleries of modern art. The first version of the paper is what the students actually handed in, which did not necessarily receive an A, but showed a basically strong organization and mentioned the most important visual qualities.
The second version has been edited by me for this book, underlining the topic sentences, correcting the grammar, adding significant details that were missing, and making the wording a little more graceful and a little less repetitious. I have tried to stay as close to the original texts as possible.
Note that the papers could have been revised in many different ways. There is no one answer to an assignment like this, just something that succeeds more or less well for the reader. Write a two-page visual description of the work you selected. Include the name of the artist, the title, the date, the medium, the approximate dimensions, the name of the collection, and the museum number.
Be sure to give enough details for the reader to be able to visualize the work in all its important aspects. Paragraphs should be the basic unit of organization. Check your topic sentences, grammar, and spelling. To find out how effective your description is, draw a picture of what you have written or have someone else read it.
In the lower part of the painting, what appears to be an strange city, or part of some device. The rest of From Green to White is covered in a strange, organic-looking background, with any shadow washed out by fog or some omni-present light.
In contrast, the city is naturalistically shaded, creating even greater contrast to the barren fog occupying the upper three fourths of the painting.
The fog is not completely featureless, however. The lower part of it is darkened, interspersed with streaks of color. Past the dark area is a section of white with a slightly blue tinge, with streaks of bright white.
The streaks gives the impression of being shimmers of light, giving the whole section a look similar to a block of partly melted ice. The ice quickly fades out the blue, leaving what appears to besky.
The city itself has a certain organic look to it.
The buildings are all rounded, with the roofs each at different slopes. In general the city is simple shapes, distorted yet still recognizable. There are a few buildings that stand out in the painting. One building in the middle, with a blue roof and curved outer walls, has strange waves on the roof, and shapes cut out from the walls.
Another building, to the left of the blue-roofed one, has grey-green tubing coming from the shaft of the tower. The top of the tower has window-like openings going around its circumference.Book Trust.
