Step 2: This Discussion is divided into 3 parts
- What is the subject?
- How does the artist fulfill the patron’s wishes?
- Both patrons are wealthy and powerful families. Explain how the location of the artworks emphasizes their power in Florence.
Step 3 – In order to receive full credit, be sure to answer all the question/s in paragraph form. Lists and outlines will not be accepted (see Guidelines for the Weekly Art Review and Ground Rules in your Syllabus or the How to Post your Weekly Art Review Answers). You do not need to make comments on other classmates posts. Remember, you will not be able to see your classmates posts until you post your answer.
Step 4 – Remember, the Discussions are separated into 3 Sections and close Weekly – on Sunday at 11:59 PM. The closing day will always be the same during the semester. This means that if Sunday is a holiday, please plan accordingly to complete the Discussion. The Discussions are open for 1 week and no extra time is allowed.
Step 5– Once a Discussion has closed, I will read & graded them – this may take a few days. Once graded, I will send an Announcement with the answers and a summation of what I read from your postings and comments. You will be able to see your grades in the Grades link after I have read/graded the Discussion.
