Describing something is a pure description of the object without values judgement, analysis or interpretation. It's to tell or depict in written or spoken words; give an account of.

Steps to describe artwork

1. look to use one's sight or vision in seeking, searching, examining, watching, etc.:

2. listen to give attention with the ear; attend closely for the purpose of hearing; give ear.

3. learn to acquire knowledge of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience


An example of describing is when someone is assigned to describe an artwork for and art class.
