Welcome to week one of PLASTICS. This new, weekly series hopes to enhance your visual literacy. Full details about the series can be found on the PLASTICS page. Remember to pay attention to the following:

  • composition/symmetry
  • color/light/line/shape/shadow
  • insight into the artist’s motivation or envision the setting

Spend anywhere from 5-10 minutes. When finished, click here for the artist and title.

Good Luck!


  1. Great Idea you have going here!

    1. thanks for the support! hope you enjoy the series. I intend to write a few articles on art observation to assist in the process, so keep checking by for new content.

  2. Well, I don’t know what to think! Apparently I am visually illiterate. I could make some sh*t up but I am gonna follow the comments on this post and see what others have to say about this. This is indeed a very wonderful concept and though I have been reading about art/poetry/etc aiding clinical diagnostic skills, this is actually the first time I am seeing this in action, Kudos. Lets see what people have to say about this!


  3. Awesome!
    And the best I can do is reblogging it!!!
    Congrats on your brilliant idea!
