This week we explored reviews and techniques that can be used to write a review. One activity we did to understand how to review in a more professional standards was to look at photos or pieces of art and then write questions about the piece to then debate over the possible answer. One painting we did was ‘American Gothic’, some of the questioned debated included:
- Why is he holding a pitch fork?
- Why is looking at him?
- Why do they both look miserable?
The debate that followed, allowed us to understand how you should question a piece so you can see the smaller details rather than just the big picture. Doing this enabled as to write more detailed reviews.
