Midterm Papers Fall 2017

Due Monday, October 30, 1:30 p.m.

  • Double spaced, 5-9 FULL pages. (No more than 9 pages of actual written content).
  • Include footnotes or bibliography when citing or quoting references or sources.
  • Include at least one work of art made by another artist as a reference to your work; comparing and contrasting
  • Include images of all works, and those of works that are referenced, at the end of the document, making sure images are scaled down to size. (72 dpi)
  • Save as word doc. File should not be more than 10 MB.
  • Write in the 3rd person
  • Email final papers to all three professors by 1:30 pm (grades will be reduced for tardiness)
  • Papers that clearly have not been proofread will be returned without a grade.

To include:

  • A brief introduction to the work, outlining general processes, inspirations and/or motifs that may be shared in the works. If you’re ready for a thesis statement, feel free to include one, but it is not required at this point.
  • 1-2 written pages on each completed work. (4 total)
  • Label each image of work in the following format: Title of Work in Italics. 2015. ARTIST’S FIRST NAME LAST NAME. Medium, scale in inches (i.e. 18 x 24 inches). You only need to include the Artist’s name if the work presented was not made by you.
  • A conclusion paragraph summarizing what you’ve outlined in the paper.

Note: Due to the deadline for midterm grade submission, and the amount of time we want you to spend with these papers, folding in feedback from your Midterm Presentations, Midterm Papers WILL NOT be factored into your midterm grades. Midterm grades will therefore only calculate your studio work, participation and Midterm Presentations.
