Writing About Art

Dr. Marjorie Munsterberg has authored a book that scaffolds a second-level writing course on the subject of art.

"Writing About Art was written as the text for a course of the same name required of all art majors at The City College of New York. The book explains the different approaches college students encounter in undergraduate art history classes. Each chapter outlines the characteristics of one type of visual or historical analysis and briefly explains its history and development. Passages by well-known art historians provide examples of each method. Sample essays by students are accompanied by extensive explanations of suggested revisions. The book also includes a step-by-step guide to researching art historical topics and a section about correctly citing sources." - Amazon.com

Coconuts part 2



I took about one hundred pictures of coconuts in SE Asia over the past few weeks and I’m once again inspired to make watercolors. This is what resulted when it happened after a trip in the Caribbean several years ago. I ended up making about six of these but I was please with three. I hope to find time to start painting again soon. This past year has been too complicated to work on my personal interests.
