Analysing an Artwork – Edvard Munch – Making Connections with Isolation

Analysing an Artwork - Edvard Munch

Analysing an Artwork – Edvard Munch

Being able to analyse an artwork is a key skill for students.  I have chosen this artwork because of its lonely, sombre quality.  The last question on the worksheet asks students to make connections to the current coronavirus crisis by asking ‘Describe how this artwork reflects what is going on in society at the moment.’

It uses Bloom’s Taxonomy to create higher-order thinking questions that cover describing, understanding, analysing, evaluating, and in this case, making connections.

There are two versions of this resource, one for the UK and one for the USA. There is also an A4 colour picture of the artwork so that students can see a bigger version.  To accommodate really able students I tell the class they can continue on the back should they wish to do so.

There are more ‘analysing an artwork’ resources on The Arty Teacher.
