If you're new to this activity the best thing is to first read the instructions because there are a couple parts to ArtSpeak 101. Actually, it's best if you first use the Visual Glossary to understand key terms.
Once you know what some key art terms mean, you can select one of the paintings below (by clicking its checkbox ). Use the text field at the bottom of this page to describe your selected painting in your very best "ArtSpeak." Do you want to get more help and find out about the ideas behind this activity?
Choose one of the paintings above by clicking its checkbox, then use as many art terms as possible below to correctly describe what's happening in the painting.
This may get a bit ridiculous, but that's part of the fun, go overboard with everything that you can possibly see. Remember, you can read examples linked from the instructions above.
