Step 1.
Make a connection between your career field and the visual arts**.  Write & post your thesis statement sentence= (visual arts + career field + connection)  and visual artist born after 1900 within Graded Lesson 1 IDE Discussion Board.

 **The visual arts are those arts discussed in your textbook.   
   **In addition: although the career field of nursing may be an art, it is not a visual art.  Although the human body is art, it is not a visual art in itself.  However, a nurse can use the visual arts (the artwork of Mary Cassatt for example) to promote mental well being of his/her patients and the human body can be used by artist in sculpture, photography etc. 
   **In addition:  not all visual images are visual artworks!!  Visual images include some advertising, medical illustrations, etc.  However, all visual artworks rely upon visual images- as all visual artwork are visual by nature.  If this is unclear for you- send your instructor a BB Message with your specific questions.

Essay / Writing Assignment/ IDE ~ Thesis/Body/ Conclusion & ExampleAttached Files:  Essay 2017 – Student .rtf (58.193 KB)
An introduction includes a topic introduction to engage the reader- yet keep it formal. A thesis statement provides the connection or theory you are going todiscuss in your essay.  (State career field, area of visual art and interdisciplinary connection to be made in essay.)
Example Thesis Statement (part 1):
The interdisciplinary connection between the visual arts and psychology will be the focus of this essay.
Example Thesis Statement (part 1 & 2 specific):
The interdisciplinary connection between the visual arts and psychology will be the focus of this essay. I will briefly discuss each area of study and how the field of psychology has influenced Surrealism, a style of art in the early twentieth century, which incorporated the dream state into art imagery.  The artwork of Jane Jones will be used to example this association between the visual arts and psychology. BODY
3-8 paragraphs: which should include a short description of your area of study as it relates to the thesis, a description of the visual arts aspect, and the supporting evidence (provided by required Scholarly source/s-documented with in at least 2 MLA in-text citations) connecting the two, and finally your short opinion paragraph of this connection.  ***Do not use section headings. CONCLUSION
Summarize your research in one additional conclusion paragraph.  Do not introduce any new ideas or information.  Reword or summarize the thesis statement and summarize how you came to this conclusion in the body. A good rule of thumb is to take a summary sentence, as it directly leads to the thesis, from each of your main paragraphs. WORKS CITED PAGE
