What is the first thing your eyes are drawn to?

What direction does your gaze travel in?

Who can come up & show me how with your finger?

What’s happening? What’s the mood?


Focal Point:

A focal point is the element in artwork that pulls in the viewer’s eye, that is the center of attention or the main subject. You can emphasize a focal point through the painting’s composition, through color, and through the range of tones you use.


An element of art: the flat path of a dot through space used by artists to control the viewer’s eye movement.


To create, form or design something by arranging parts to create a unified whole.


Social Commentary:

  • Art as social commentary is a major theme in modern and contemporary art.
  • The artist assumes the roles of reporter and analyst in an exploration of the nature of society.
  • Subjects from momentous historical events to everyday activities.

Examples of social commentary

“THE SUSPENDED TEACHERS were asked to speak at the student rally. The students wanted to know if there was “anything in the university that can’t stand discussion.”

Acting-President Wright forbade the teachers who had been suspended from addressing the student body, forbade the students from listening.”
