How the artwork reflects the ideals or beliefs of the society that produced it.
If you select a topic like Roman Wall Paintings (which is a pretty large topic) please choose a specific style or specific image.
Use at least 3 Web sources, and be sure to cite your sources correctly using MLA style and include links for the sites and URLs containing images so other students can see what you are writing about. Again, these should be in your own words and any borrowed ideas or words should be properly documented. Again, I’m much happier if you write in your own words without depending on quotes. You should write in a manner similar to the way you would talk to me if we were discussing the artwork. I want to know how you understand the piece and what you have learned. If you are able to choose the topic that most interests you, you should be able to tell us all about what you learned and why it’s an interesting artwork!!
I would prefer that you kept quotes to a minimum or did not use them at all.
