COMPARE & CONTRAST
Documentary films of varying lengths are being used in place of a textbook. Before beginning your submission, it is expected that all of the films that pertain to this assignment be viewed, and these have all been labeled as Compare/Contrast Film.
Comparing & Contrasting:
Use 2 separate documentary films. Choose 1 artwork from each film.
Make sure the 2 artworks are completely different mediums. Some examples: paint, graphite/pencil, charcoal, clay/ceramic, marble, bronze, glass, wood, etc.
Make sure the 2 artworks are not of the same type, meaning you cannot discuss 2 paintings despite one being acrylic and another oil, or 2 sculptures despite one being bronze and the other marble, etc. The idea is to discuss 2 artworks that obviously seem different at first glance.
Discuss how the 2 artworks are different both visually, thematically, and in their mediums/use of materials.
Discuss what makes the 2 artworks similar.
