The assignment will be submitted as a MS Word document in APA writing format.
Your focus will be on a single artist, and preferably focused on a single work of art by that artist, though other objects may be discussed comparatively.
RESEARCH is necessary, as well as a trip to the museum of your choice. If you have a slightly different type of subject in mind, you must clear this with me first.
