Here is a 4 pages document to explain students how to describe and analyse a picture. It is full of pictures to explain the differences between a painting and a poster for example. It shows how pictures can be used and what roles they have in relation to a text. I used this resource originally with secondary school French students but I then used it in French as a Foreign Language for intermediate and upper intermediate students while talking about art and media.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Please leve a feedback and rating to get your free resource.
