Albrecht Dürer is one of the most prolific and influential printmakers in this history of art. He was a German artist who worked with Martin Luther and helped promote the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century.
This zip download includes a PDF lesson plan for the lecture, 30 slide PowerPoint lecture that provides background of the world in which Durer lived and his art, a note guide, an answer key to the note guide, a lesson plan for the linocut printmaking project, and a printmaking rubric.
Durer was known for his woodcut prints, but woodcuts are difficult to make in a high school art room, which is why linoleum prints are an appropriate print to make in relationship to Durer’s art.
Materials required for this project include: paper, pencils, ebony pencils, linoleum, permanent markers, rulers, bench hooks, linoleum cutters, brayers, trays, ink, and barrens (or large spoons, or a printing press).
