March 30-April 14: Ms. Wiles' teaching week!
Week 9, 16-19 March: How did changes in art reflect new Renaissance ideals?
This week, we're going to get into more detail about the lives of specific Renaissance artists. Did these individuals really influence this time period? Did the Renaissance happen over night? Today, we're going to look at art from both Michelangelo and Da Vinci, and discuss why their work is linked to the Renaissance.
-finish background readings
Today, we're going to finish the background reading on select artists and the Renaissance as a whole.
After yesterday's gallery walk, you all should have a good idea of how art reflected Renaissance ideals. We'll go over some key terms and ideas in class. The rest is up to you!
Week 8, 9-13 March: The Renaissance......How did changes in art reflect new Renaissance ideals?
Learning Objectives: This week, our goal is to learn about the push towards humanism during the Renaissance. We will do this by reading passages about art, and the societal structure of Europe during the Renaissance.
In groups, we're going to read background content on The Renaissance to gain a better understanding of what happened, and why ideals started to change in Europe. I'm going to speak with each of you about your websites.
Today, let's aim to complete the section assessment on the Renaissance and begin our discussion on the ideals and influence of art in Italy.
I was impressed by our conversation yesterday. Triangles, perception, lines, nice recognition! Let's continue with our discussion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja......wait, I mean the four famous artists of the Renaissance.
