Visual Arts Portfolio

Create a portfolio of five to six works of art and architecture organized under one of the following themes or another theme of your own creation:

  • Works of art and architecture I would like to see in person
  • Highlights of art and architecture from the Italian Renaissance
  • Works from the Capitol: the art and architecture of Washington, D.C.

Write a brief four- to six-sentence description of each work of art or architecture that includes a description of its formal elements, the type of media or material used, and an overview of the subject or style of the work of art or architecture.

It is recommended you use Google Cultural Institute to help you on this assignment or you may use the websites of museums, cultural institutions, or other academic online resources. If you use Google Cultural Institute, register at the site. This will allow you to select images and create your own gallery. On the Google Cultural Institute pages, browse and search images and save them by clicking on the plus sign located above the image, near the title. Once you have your selection of images, click on "Create your own galleries..." or "My Galleries" to create a gallery using the images you have saved. When creating your gallery, you must add a description to each work to fulfill the requirements of this assignment; do this by clicking "Edit" under each image when in your gallery. Finally, you must make your gallery public to share it; do this by clicking on "Private" and then copy the url of your gallery page from the address bar and submit this to your instructor. 

If you do not use the Google Cultural Institute to create a gallery, you may use another presentation tool for this assignment, such as PowerPoint®. If you do so, make sure to include correct APA formatting to cite each image and resource, and include your descriptions in the speaker notes or in another document.

Submit your assignment using the Assignment Files tab.

  • Word count for the speaker notes: a total of 350 - 500 words that can be divided up over the different slides. (You are welcome to go over the word count on the speaker notes and if you wish.

Create a museum website scavenger hunt worksheet and answer key for your class. Decide which grade level, K-12, you are teaching and keep the age of your students in mind when creating this activity.
