Before you start writing you may research the background information on the history of the Thanksgiving holiday. Remember, though, that this essay should concentrate onyour personal impression and reflection.
Examine the painting very carefully and note how it makes you feel. Pay attention to the style and techniques the artist used, the use of light, color, and shape, the focus, the composition of the image, and the way the elements are oriented in relationship to one another.
Prewriting: Begin by brainstorming and mapping (Keys pp. 15-17). Describe the elements and composition of the painting.Write down your thoughts and feelings prompted by it. Try to formulate your main idea, then think of three or four key points in support of your claim. Think of a logical way to organize your arguments and make an informal outline.
Putting it Together:Formulate a strong thesis statement(consult Keys pp. 18-20 or College Writing p. 23).Choose your approach: your main point may be about how the main message of the painting, about the artist’s technique, or about the conflict between the message of the painting and the history of the real first Thanksgiving.Think of an original title.
Develop yourthesis with several paragraphs and logical transitions between them to maintain coherence. Make sure the description of the paintingis detailed enough so that a reader can visualize it without actually seeing it.Use specific, expressive words. After a good, detailed description, you may move to the social or cultural elements that are reflected in the painting’s content.Analyze the way the artist appeals to the audienceand concentrate on the connection between the features of the painting and the effect they produce on the viewer.
Make sure to group your ideas together into coherent paragraphs. Each paragraph should start with a topic sentence (Keys pp. 24-25 or College Writing p. 6) and should contain only the sentences that go with that topic sentence.
Wrap up with a conclusion that would remind the readers of your main argumentand provide a sense of completion (see Keys pp. 35-36 for advice on writing a good conclusion).
