When writing essays on art, it can be hard to organize your thoughts and ideas. An outline can help you to achieve a good structure and logical flow of ideas throughout the paper. Here are the steps to help you in creating an art essay outline:

Step 2. Browse relevant art that you want to analyze in your essay. Most essays on this subject require you to interact with the source material, such as a painting. This step will also help you with visual analysis further on.
Step 3. Brainstorm ideas that you could incorporate into your essay. Brainstorming is a great tool for finding things to write about in your essay. Write out all you can think of in relation to the chosen title, don’t hold any ideas back!
Step 4. Try to group ideas and information by themes. These themes will later become the foundation of the outline. At this stage, refer to your chosen title continuously to ensure that all the themes fit well with it.
Step 5. Write the outline using groups of ideas you identified. Ideas that come from course readings should be placed in the introduction. Information that you researched on your own should go into the main body. Finally, your own beliefs, viewpoints, and opinions on artwork should be covered in the Analysis section or the Conclusion.
