Take a moment to really look at the painting. Ponder the scene that has been captured and the characters within it.
1. What mood do you think this presents?
2. Imagine that you were viewing this picture as a scene in a movie rather than in a painting. Explain how your response might be different.
6th Grade ONLY: using your Grammar & Composition textbook turn to page 2-3. Answer the following questions below for your critical viewing exercise.
1. What mood do you think this image presents? (Answer this question for both images; The one here in critical viewing and the image on page 2-3 in your book.)
A) In the image in your book: How does the photograph's use of silhouettes rather than details evoke the mood you interpeted?
2. Imagine that you were viewing this picture (the painting-critical viewing #3 only) as a scene in a movie rather than in a painting. Explain how your response might be different.
3. Compare the image (photograph) in your book on page 2-3 to the critical viewing image #3. How are they alike? How are they different (create a Venn Diagram to help you sort out your information.) Then write your statements. You may use more than one page in your journal to complete this assignment.
