Art as seen through three different cultures.

I’m trying to learn for my Art & Design class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

paper, 4-5 pages, double spaced, is as follows: Chose at least one work of art {it could be more} from three different cultures that are illustrated in your textbook. In your own words, tell me the characteristics found in this work of art that show it is from a particular culture.For example, Greek Art was sometimes based on Geometry and pattern. The Greeks also were the first culture to create a free-standing sculpture. Greek artists were also known for their black-figure and red-figure technique in pottery.

In each image you choose from the book, tell me how the art created by this culture may add to the story of art. Give details. Please do not just quote from the book. Use your own words and opinions and observations! You can also gather more information online, but shape into your own words! If I feel you just created an Internet paper you will get a Zero!

Finally,tell me in your own words, why YOU think it is important for todays society, to learn and study the past. Any question, please feel free to contact me.
