This is a list of things you may choose from for your 250-word journal-report entries.You are required to view five art events of your choice, as described on page one. Then write
a 250-word report describing each. Convince us you saw it all. One report must be passed in
on the date of the first hour test, two at each of the other hour tests. This is informal writing,
unlike the paper. Your report should name the event, with its date and time. Then describe
the event overall (art exhibit – how many items; concert – number of works, overall duration,
theater or dance – type of work (old, classical, modern, etc.) Then describe some things in
detail. All visual art reports must describe at least two works in some detail; all performance
descriptions must include items from both the beginning and the end of the program with
enough detail to prove your attendance. Descriptions should use the Elements of that art
form that you have learned in class. Permissible Art Events – A variety of types of art: Visual
Art exhibits, Concerts, Dramatic Art events, Dance performances. You may include one (only)
popular style music concert or movie. Not permissible are: single artworks, works of
architecture, outdoor art, single movements of music, music at athletic events or in bars or
restaurants, stand-up comedy. All art must be experienced during this semester,
Fine Arts 150 – Events available on the internet for Journals
Follow the usual journal directions for writing
For Visual Arts, instead of live performances or exhibits, use some of the following. For the visual arts,
follow the directions immediately below. Create an art exhibit of at least 20 works as directed. List at
least five of them to show the theme (creator, title, date suffice). Describe one or two that appealed to you
and say why — about a page of finished prose.
For Performing Arts, listen to or watch complete large works or at least 20 minutes of smaller works, then
write about a movement, scene or act. Don’t just watch a little bit of a work and expect it to count. Again,
about a page of writing will do.
For the Visual Arts — Make Your Own Art Exhibit
View a group of at least 20 works selected from
There are three ways to find these —
1. Click on the alphabet at the top or bottom to get Alphabetic Lists of Artists.
Pick one and start; if there aren’t 20 works, go on to the next to find additional ones.
2. Guided Tours A. You can click on the link to pick 20 pictures at random, or
B. Another link picks them by keyword (computer’s choice); you can usually figure out what word
the computer has used by finding it repeated in the works’ titles.
3. If you are interested in a particular artist or subject, you can look for him/her/it on Wikimedia.
In writing your journal entry, list ten of the works, then discuss the one(s) you choose as before. Note:
Works labeled detail are only part of a larger work. You need to discuss the whole work, but you may find
the details handy for clarifying certain points. If you are interested in background information, look the
artist up on Wikipedia or elsewere, but you don’t need to include this information in your writing.
For the Performing Arts — Watch some YouTube videos below
For vocal works in foreign languages, the videos have subtitles. Listen to or watch at least 20 minutes, at
least one full act of a large work (may be more than 20 minutes—). Listen to complete Symphonies,
Concertos, other large works. A collection of shorter works to reach at least 20 minutes is alright, too, like
listening to five Bach Preludes and Fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier. Write about one movement.
