Artistic Change in Sculpture

I have added picture to use for this assignment it just needs to be completed in text. I have listed instructions for this assignment below. The template to complete the work is in an atachment.



Relative to human history, the period covered in this week’s study is long. During this lengthy span of years, not only did people change in appearance, but the way they lived also changed radically. What we have found of their art and architecture also demonstrates an evolution in these areas.

Using your eBook, find one example of sculpture from each of the following periods: Paleolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze OR Iron Age.

View these sculpture pieces carefully. Capture an image of each of the three sculptures and place them in chronological order, from oldest to newest, in this template. Then, using information from your textbook, lectures, and other appropriate academic sources, provide the following regarding each image:


  1. The title of the work, its location, the materials used to create the work (if known), and the date.
  2. A brief assessment of the visual properties you observe. Describe the types of lines, shapes, colors and textures (actual and perceived) the artist has used.
  3. An analysis of the formal structure of each piece. What is the meaning or importance of how the artist has arranged, organized, or structured the visual elements in the image?
  4. The natural subject of each piece. Based on your textbook reading and Internet research, are there any details that have a symbolic meaning? If so, what?
  5. A five- to seven-sentence paragraph that discusses the cultural context of each work, based on what you have learned through your textbook reading, the online lectures, and Internet research. What do the images tell you about the culture and the people who created them?
  6. List of references, including the specific websites where you found the images.

Project Stage 3

 Complete this portion using the information in the attached Proposal.  Come up with interview questions for Toni Preckwinkle and answer them according to research you do on the policy I provided.

Thank you,


Introduction: This course includes a staged project in which you will evaluate a public policy as identified in the Staged Project 1: Proposal. This project should involve interviewing those affected by the policy. This will reveal gaps between the public agency and the public and prepare you for applying the public value scorecard. By Module 3 you should conduct the interview(s) and summarize your findings.

Instructions: As part of your public policy evaluation, you are expected to interview a member of the community impacted by the policy or representatives of a community group impacted by the policy. Summarize your interview here.

Your summary should include:

  1. Who you interviewed and their position in the community impacted by the policy
  2. The context of the interview, such as time, date, and place
  3. What was discussed in the interview
  4. Significant findings or responses from the interviewee
  5. Your reflections on the interview, including how it informs your view of the policy you are examining
  6. A list of the questions you asked

Submission: There is no set length for this component of the project, but expect the body of the summary to be three to four pages (750-1,000 words) in length.



Within the Discussion Board area, write 350–500 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

You will have 2 options this week for your DB posting. Select either Option 1 or Option 2 for your Discussion Board response. For your responses to classmates, please respond to at least 1 person from the option that you did not select and the second response from someone who replied to the same option as you.

Option 1

This week will focus on situational leadership. Situational leadership is based on a leader’s ability to adapt his or her style and approach based on what is most needed in that situation. What is most needed is usually determined by the gaps in subordinates’ skills and abilities with the task requirements. 

Research articles on situational leadership. Use high-level and synthesis thinking in your responses to the following questions:

  • Where do situational leadership and authentic leadership conflict, and where are there similarities? 
  • How would you apply situational leadership to improve the performance of leaders? 
  • How can the style approach (behavior theory) be combined with situational  leadership to develop subordinates? 

Option 2

Write 350–500 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments.

  • Steven Sample discussed the importance of leaders having experts. These experts, as defined by Sample (2003), need to be artful listeners so they can understand what the leader is trying to achieve and then help them accomplish these objectives. Contrarian leaders are able to distinguish      the experts that are saviors from the charlatans (Sample, 2003). 
    • Identify   5 experts that you need in your life during your doctoral journey and the objectives each expert will help you achieve.
  • Steven Sample discussed the importance of leaders to read what he calls supertexts. These supertexts, as explained by Sample, are insightful, the foundation of our culture, and stimulate original thinking. Some of the books he recommends are The Prince, Plato’s Republic, Shakespeare’s Hamlet  and Othello, Sophocles’ Antigone, and Dante’s Divine Comedy (Sample, 2003).  
    • What was the last supertext that you read? 
    • What  insights did you gain that helped stimulate original thinking? 
    • Why do you think Sample considered these supertexts more important than reading popular periodicals? Do you agree or disagree? Justify your answer.

In addition to addressing all requirements of the assignments, model answer includes the following:

Option 1

  • Discuss adaptation.
  • Discuss supportive versus directive interventions.
  • Where differences occur is in the approach. If a person is naturally supportive, he or she may find challenges in leadership roles that require him or her to be very directive. If the situation is more      temporary or instant, then situational leadership and authentic leadership are similar. In situations demanding a specific leadership style over long periods, if that style is opposite to the leader’s natural preference, the two may conflict.
  • As subordinates apply these theories, in assessing their performance and knowledge gaps, they will be better able to assess where they need to improve and can use the style approach to observe their      leaders and apply what they have learned.

Option 2

  • Identify your mentors as experts who will help you navigate through the dissertation process, professors as the subject matter experts, advisors as experts on university policies, maybe editors      as APA experts to help to finalize the dissertation. Personal experts like counselors to help manage the stress, and financial experts to help with the financial processes associated with the doctoral journey. Again, this is more personal, so answers may vary.
  • Key point: Experts should be able to help you meet your defined objectives.
  • Importance of supertext to history and culture.
  • The insights that are gained from your selected supertext should be connected to changing your mindset or helping your perspective on certain aspects of life.
  • Sample considered these supertexts more important than periodicals because they are changing the fabric of our thoughts, challenging our ideals, and causing us to rethink our own thoughts and      ideas.
