This is the first step in an ongoing course project. This project will provide an opportunity to choose an art form and deepen your understanding of it, when you select a work of art within that art form to study and research throughout the course. You will fulfill various weekly parameters that detail the specific requirements for each worksheet as you participate in the weekly Final Project Milestones exercise.
Final Project Milestone 1: Identify an artistic venue for an art form that you can attend by the end of Week 4 of this course. Examples include, but are not limited to, an art or photograph exhibition, concert, dance recital, film, or theater production.
Note: In Week 2, you will choose a specific work of art, identify the venue where you will observe that art form, and identify the chapter in the course text that corresponds with that art form. (The Week 1 and Week 2 Final Project Milestones constitute the basis of your Final Project.)
Please review the preformatted “Final Project Milestone 1” worksheet.

Please review the “Introduction to the Humanities Through the Arts Final Project” document in this week’s Learning Resources.

Think about what art form (e.g., drama, music, literature, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, or other) you want to focus on for your project.
Note: In Week 2, for Final Project Milestone 2, you choose a work of art within that art form.
