Analysing an Artwork – Arcimboldo

2106

Analysing an artwork is a key skill for students. Teach your students how to analyse an artwork using this one-page worksheet.  It uses Blooms Taxonomy to create higher-order thinking questions that cover describing, understanding, analysing, evaluating and creating.

There are two versions of this resource, one with the word analyze & color and one with analyse and colour.  There is also an A4 colour picture of the artwork so you can put a few on desks and then print the worksheet in black and white to save on printing costs.  You can print this resource A4 or A3 depending on how much you want them to write.  To accommodate really able students I tell the class they can continue on the back should they wish to do so.

Choose to guide your students through this worksheet or use it as a test to see what they can achieve independently.

    Dear Sarah,
    Thank you for the worksheets. As a good educator you would probably caution against set-in-stone memorandums. I am therefore suggesting with caution if you could possibly include some kind of personal response/notes/ideas to the questions. Part of the fun of appreciating art is to hear about the divers ways in which an artwork can be interpreted and experienced. I am therefore fully aware how important it is for questions and memorandums to be “open ended and open-to-interpretation”.
