Can Art...?



Write a research paper addressing the following question: Can Art Stop a War and Save the Planet?

Your essay should be (5) paragraphs long in Times New Roman font (size 12 pt) and double-spaced. It MUST be a WORD document. You can include up to three images in your paper. If you are adding images they should be anecdotal and used as examples of the research you are writing about. For instance if you are discussing Francisco Goya's Disasters of War you should include a small image with a caption of the work and then refer to the image (above, below, to the right, etc) in your explanation about the work.

All images must be cited on your Works Cited Page. Reference Purdue OWL: MLA Formatting and Style Guide on how to cite a photographic reproduction of an artwork under: A Painting, Sculpture, or Photograph.

You need to write in complete sentences and in paragraph format. Papers turned in that are not in complete sentences or paragraph format WILL NOT be graded. 

This paper requires research and will need in-line citations that reference the research you got your information from: "According to..." I expect you to use a minimum of three (3) sources from the available material found in the Art & War reading folder. If you only use these sources I will only require you to use the in-line citations as we have not gone over the MLA Formatting in class yet.

If you want to use additional resources that is fine as well, but I will expect in-line citations and a Works Cited page in MLA format. Turning in an incorrect Works Cited page or missing in-line citations will affect your grade. Papers that do not have a Works Cited page WILL NOT be graded and will receive a zero. 

Please meet with a tutor at the ASC/Writing Center for help with citations if you are unsure how to do them correctly. 

WIKIPEDIA OR BLOGS ARE NOT RELIABLE RESOURCES AND WILL MAKE YOUR PAPER INVALID AND UNGRADEABLE. USE RELIABLE RESEARCH SOURCES ONLY! Look at museum websites, academic websites/journals, a gallery, scholarly journal, books from the library, videos of interviews with experts (or the artist) about the work, etc. If you are unsure of the validity of your source try to find an additional source that corroborates the information.

You will be graded on the following:

−Integrating your information through text, verbal language and images

−Presenting your information in an interesting and compelling manner

−Sharing unique perspective found while doing research

−Works Cited Page is required - Don’t know how to write a works cited page? There are plenty of online resources and the writing center on campus is completely free and will help you write and perfect your works cited page as well as proof-read your paper.
