[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]



Model Answer 1:
Before I dare to say a word about this particular topic, I must admit that I am no “art enthusiast” or “aesthete” who can analyze or critique any artwork. So, please bear with me and be patient. And thank you for this interesting topic.

Anyway, the artwork, or a painting rather, I want to talk about is of a “Lone flying bird” under the sky on a bright, sunny day. Initially, I couldn’t really make much of this painting. But when I asked the guide in that city art gallery, which I visited with my friends a year ago, about the “artwork”, she told me that it was a “watercolour painting” and that the painting was done by an “autistic” 9 years old boy.

By the way, the section of that city art gallery, which I was visiting at that time, was dedicated and assigned only for the paintings and artworks of young and gifted children of my city, apparently because the city authority wanted to encourage their young and gifted kids to learn and appreciate the arts. However, among many other beautiful looking artworks, this particular piece caught my eye, mainly because it had some truly amazing colour combinations and that too came from a 9 years old autistic young boy!

In fact, the light pink colour of the sky and the flying bird in blue colour matched so perfectly with the crystal clear blue water of the ocean underneath, as if the bluebird (a “great blue heron”) - so tiny in comparison with the ocean - was competing with the sky for attention, and also that it couldn’t possibly be more beautiful looking than the bird! Such awesome paint!

Anyway, I like the artwork so much, mainly because it was so simple and yet so deep in meaning in the sense that it was able to capture the imagination of a gifted and young kid. I like it also because it portrayed the unadulterated beauty of mother nature by playing with some simple colours.




Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
We all know that art is a medium that captures the imagination and emotions of individuals. From paintings to sculptures to architecture, each work of art has its unique style and story. One of the pieces of art that I find captivating is the Sydney Opera House. Before I get into the details of this marvellous architectural work, I would like to thank you for the time and opportunity to let me talk about it.

How it looks:
The Sydney Opera House is a masterpiece of modern architecture. Its unique sail-like design and white-tiled exterior make it one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world. The interior of the Opera House is equally impressive, with its stunning concert halls, theatres, and open spaces. I am lucky that I visited this extraordinary piece of architectural structure a couple of years ago. It was simply stunning.

Where you first saw it:
I first saw the Sydney Opera House when I visited Sydney, Australia, with my family a couple of years ago. It was an awe-inspiring experience to see it in person and appreciate the incredible design and engineering that went into creating such a magnificent structure.

How you feel about this artwork:
I feel a sense of admiration and wonder every time I think about the Sydney Opera House. The sheer scale and complexity of the design make it a true work of art. Its ability to blend into the surrounding landscape and the harbour adds to its beauty and uniqueness.

And explain why you like it so much:
There are several reasons why I like the Sydney Opera House so much. Firstly, its innovative and modern design is timeless and has become an icon of contemporary architecture. Secondly, the Opera House has cultural significance as a venue for some of the most exceptional performing arts in the world. Lastly, the Opera House has sentimental value for me as it reminds me of the time I spent with my family in Australia.
