2. Use at least one to two paragraph to describe what category from the list above that this artwork falls under and explain how it does. Go to Chapter 5 in your textbook tohelp you decide which category your artwork best falls under. You may also use another source(s) aside from the textbook if you wish, but you must include a link to the website below your response.

2. Use at least one to two paragraphs to describe the FORMAL ELEMENTS AND PRINCIPLES OF COMPOSITION. Be specific and use language found in Chapter 2 of the textbook Being vague or unclear when describing the artwork is the easiest way to lose credit for this assignment.
