Unit VI instructions
Unit VI- background information
In this unit we will be continuing work on our presentations by providing background information on our theme and the images in our galleries.
Just to recap, this what the syllabus says you need for this section:
-Describe the time period of the artwork.
– Include information on the artist of the artworks.
– Include facts that relate to your selected art pieces. For example, if your artwork depicts a war, it may be helpful to give information about that war.
Its important to understand that you should not be re-stating the same facts on every single background slide. You should be discussing these 3 areas over the course of 5 background slides (or more, depending on how many slides you need and if you included extra images). Each of you have picked themes that are multi-dimensional. Discuss different aspects on each slide.
For Unit VI of your art gallery presentation, you will be adding a written description of the background information on your artworks to your PowerPoint presentation.
Be sure to review your Unit V feedback and make any necessary revisions. Next, research the background and details of your artworks using your textbook, the course content, and the CSU Online Library.
For this segment, use the slides in the art gallery template labeled “Background.” You will need one for each artwork. You may include more than one idea on each slide, but please do not overload the slides with information. Be sure to address the following:
 Describe the time period of the artwork.
 Include information on the artist of the artworks.
 Include facts that relate to your selected art pieces. For example, if your artwork depicts a war, it may be helpful to give information about that war.
Be sure to use APA format during this assignment. It is important to give credit to the source that provided your information. At the end of a sentence where you have information from a source, add a citation. The citation should consist of the author or authors’ last name(s) and the year of publication. For our textbook, it would be (Frank, 2014). If it is a quotation, add a page or paragraph number. For example, a quote from your textbook would look like this: (Frank, 2014, p. 119). Place the full reference for the source on the References slide at the end.
