Understanding Your Assignment

Before you begin looking for information you should make sure you understand your assignment. Some good questions are:

    • Books
    • Articles
    • Websites
  • What format?

Your professor is your best resource to answer these questions.

What time period did the artist live?

Is your artist a long established, well known artist or someone who only recently became known?
