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.
