Explaining the Arts

Imagine a scenario where you are
the last surviving member of the human species and you find yourself on another
planet. The people of the planet do not have performing or visual arts of any
kind. Living on a planet without the arts is dull, so you have decided to
explain what the arts, are and why they are important.

Include a discussion of all of
the following describing the elements of each:

  • Painting

  • Sculpture

  • Architecture

  • Music

  • Dance

  • Theater

  • Cinema

Include one slide that discusses
how the arts engage the viewer or audience.

Include at least one slide that
discusses the individual's and the community's role in supporting the arts.

Submit your assignment as a 12-
to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® with detailed speaker notes using the
Assignment Files tab. Use images as appropriate, and cite your references.
