Art Appreciation #31writeNow

The day will end in 15 minutes and I’m just getting around to writing today’s blog post.

Have you ever visited an art gallery or museum but didn’t really know what to look for? Of course, you may have may found a work of art that you liked or disliked but did you take the time to analyze what it was about the work that lead you to that decision?

I came across this article entitled Art appreciation 101 that treats the subject in simple terms.

Firstly, ask yourself if you like the painting before you. Do you enjoy it? If so, why? If not, why? Then, employ the following 5 ‘C’s to help you clarify your feelings. These 5 ‘C’s stand for ‘Colours, Composition, Content, Context and Choice’.

Everyone interprets art differently, even artists often disagree with each other’s interpretations. These steps simply serve as a guide or starting point you can use to fully appreciate the process.
