use of elements of art and principles of design?

7. Why do you think that the artist chose to work in this manner and made
these kinds of artistic decisions?
8. Why did the artist create this artwork?
IV. Judgment: After careful observation, analysis, and interpretation of
an artwork, you are ready to make your own judgment. This is your
personal evaluation based on the understandings of the work(s). Here are
questions you might consider:
1. Why do you think that this work has intrinsic value or worth? What is the
value that you find in the work(s)? (For example, it is a beautiful work of art,
conveys an important social message, affects the way that I see the world, makes
insightful connections, reaffirms a religious belief, etc.)
2. Do you think that the work(s) has a benefit for others? Do you find that the
work communicates an idea, feeling or principle that would have value for others?
3. What kind of effect do you think the work could have for others?
4. Does the work lack value or worth? Why do you think this is so? Could
the reason you find the work lacking comes from poor use of the elements of
art? Could the subject matter by unappealing, unimaginative, or repulsive?
