Course Objective(s):
This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin.
CO-7: Demonstrate the ability to locate and incorporate art historical research sources in a scholarly paper.
C0-8: Examine an artist’s biography and artistic production.
A PowerPoint Presentation is due at the end of Week 7. Visit the APUS online library, look at the course guides, and optionally use the “Ask the Librarian” resource to help you locate scholarly references. They have electronic rights to JSTOR, which is a journal storage database, and other databases.
Note that you have access to PPT and a set of MS Office products for free through your school Office 365 email account. See the University generated announcement Optimizing Faculty-Student Communication from week one of the course,
Thinking about the artist, artwork, or architect experienced in your week five museum visit, this is the place to elaborate on the subject. If nothing during that trip thrilled you, you are free to explore any artist, artwork, or architecture explored during the course.
Where you submitted a paper in week five, this week you will submit a PowerPoint with approximately the same information. You are not writing a paper and pasting it onto the slides. You should follow standard best practices of including bullets on the slides with an explanation for each bullet in the notes section. See the attachment on how to access the notes section.
Again, you will follow the guidelines presented in Writing a Critique from the week 1 discussion with some additional information.
Here is a summary of what you will submit for your PowerPoint Presentation:
A Cover Slide including your artist’s name, your name, the course title, and the date.
One slide with a brief biography of your artist or description of the evolution of the artwork of architecture (when painted or created, what was happening in the life of the artist, etc.).
One slide each for the Description, Analysis, Interpretation, and Judgement/evaluation.
A Reference list slide properly citing at least 3 references cited in the MLA, APA, or the style preferred by your degree program. As a 200-level class, it is more important you give credit where due by placing citations where the information referenced was used and clear references that match the citations.
See the attached guide for APA and MLA.
The Required Reading Videos and Resources in Lesson Two may be helpful in this project.
Wikipedia note: It is “open-source,” meaning that anyone can post there, even those who know nothing about the subject. Try reading the disclaimer.
AMU/APUS has a great library for source material. Start there.

There are often many museums near you that have outstanding collections. It might be interesting and fun to research a work and then take a small trip to see it in person sometime. It’s like meeting a celebrity!
You can also start with the name of an artist that you appreciated, conduct an internet search, and resources will be available.
Please consider the following:
Of course, you may do an internet search for any of your artists/architects, do keep them scholarly.
DO NOT USE WIKIPEDIA as a reference.
You may use Museum websites or other scholarly sources.
Images are interesting but shouldn’t take the place of written content. Cite all references.
If you choose to add your voice to the presentation, ensure your exact transcript is included in the notes. DO NOT JUST READ YOUR SLIDES. It is not only insulting, it adds nothing to the presentation. The note or your voice, which is to be transcribed into the notes, should explain the bullets on the slides.
Please see the attached Grading rubric.
Please see the PowerPoint Tips in the Week 7 Discussion before creating your PowerPoint.
