This PowerPoint review game covers samples of significant art from all major art movements in European History since the Renaissance Era. It serves as a great way to review with AP students for the AP European History Exam.
Students are shown a painting or sculpture, then asked to make an educated guess about what art movement it is from. The educator then reveals the information about the painting. To make the most of it, my students and I discuss the visual characteristics that help us identify the movement (style, subject, etc.), as well as the historical context of the movement for each piece. As a result, we review not only the artistic styles themselves but the historical events and trends each piece is connected to.
Teacher notes are included - general directions, as well as notes on selected slides (see notes view; or drag the line below each slide upward to see the note section below it).
