Art of the 1950s and 1960s Presentation – Excelsior Writers |
Excelsior Writers |

Choose one of the following themes for a presentation on your Week 4 content:

  • Changing Times: Proto-Pop and The Beats (must include either Robert Rauschenberg or Jasper Johns)
  • Andy Warhol and Pop Art (focus on Warhol OR Warhol and other Pop artists)
  • Protest Art (You may choose to focus on Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, or both)

Create a 10- to 12-sllde presentation (including a title and reference slide) on your selected theme that includes the following:

  • 100- to 250-word speaker notes for each of your content slides that summarize the main points listed on the slide (you will have a minimum of 8 to 10 content slides which excludes the title and reference slides).
  • A description and analysis of four to six artworks related to your selected theme (include an image of each artwork).
  • A description of the subject of each artwork; what was the subject depicted by the artist?
  • An examination of how this type of art developed; why did artists choose these subjects? To what social or cultural events were artists responding?
  • A description of the materials, media, or techniques used by the artists; why did the artist use these materials or techniques? What is the overall effect of the artwork?

Format your presentation using the guidelines below:

  • Notes should be in the ‘notes’ section, not on the slide, and should be written as if you were speaking to a live audience. Be sure and proofread aloud to catch errors that are often missed when proofreading silently.
  • Bullet points on the slide should be the primary points of your notes. Use the ‘6 by 6’ rule for slides – no more than six bullet points per slide, and no more than six words per bullet point.
  • Include citations at the bottom of the slide indicating the sources of your information.
  • Avoid using direct quotes in your notes – paraphrase instead; however, if you must use a direct quote, be sure and put quotation marks around the quote, and add the page or paragraph number in your citation.
  • Use good, clear images on your slides for the examples, provide the exact source of the image below it (on the slide, not in the notes), using a smaller font than that used with your bullet point
  • Don’t bother using animation on your presentations – it is not necessary.
  • Be sure and have a reference slide as your final slide, listing all of the sources cited in your notes AND the sources of the images used in proper APA format. DO NOT USE COURSEHERO and DO NOT PLAGIARIZE
