Where to begin? The art of the Italian Renaissance is such a rich topic, with new techniques, new styles, and an emphasis on new subject matter. Images created by the greats such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Botticelli are here for the viewing. Each image is dissected as they exemplify the techniques of the time, such as perspective and embedded geometry.
Explore the development of wood art. In this art history instructional activity, students study the art work of Gary Stevens. They describe, analyze, and derive meaning from the art they see. They then write a theory about the artist's purpose for the work of art and support their answer with reasonable personal opinions.
There is no better tool to help you explain art or architecture than an image-filled slide show. Classic Greek art, architecture, and engineering are all described with excellent visual examples and text which defines each form by its characteristics. If you need nothing more than a great visual aid, then this is it.
Students view prints of contemporary Inuit art and create a stencilling art piece. For this Inuit art lesson, students view a slideshow of Inuit art and write stories for the images. Students discuss the stories and art's effect. Students brainstorm about a heroic experience they've had and write a short story about it. Students then complete a stenciled art piece for the story.
Kids get artistic as they explore the impact of art materials, sculpture, and performance. They discuss the work of Janine Antoni and then create a performance piece that reflects social or global issues they feel strongly about. The end result should be an empathetic, thoughtful, and highly engaging experience for the entire class.
When Europeans first came back with tales of China, they provided vivid written accounts and minimal visual imput. This resulted in art rendered mostly from descriptive language. Learners explore this phenomena by listening to descriptions of specific Chinese masterpieces, then attempting to use just the description to guide their drawing. The lesson could result in an eye-opening class discussion.
