Your True View

Your True View Activity Page

Basic Instructions
If you're new to this activity the best thing is to first read the instructions. Basically what you'll do in Your True View is explore current artworks posted on the Web. None of them are yet "certified masterpieces," so you get to decide. These are paintings by real living people. Some of them are considered important artists while others might be amateurs (people who do something for the love of it). If you were (and you are) an experienced art critic, how would you interpret the quality of an "unknown" work of art?

The Online Galleries
Choose one of these online galleries to look through for the one work you want to give Your True View about. Although we've chosen links appropriate to secondary students, understand that occasionally a mature theme may slip into these galleries.
