This assignment is great for teachers to incorporate art history into their art class without having to know much about these popular pieces.
The focus of the assignment is to utilize the elements and principles of design the students know (pre-taught) and to apply this knowledge to famous art history works. Through their analysis of the art piece, they then state their own opinion of the art piece in a reflective way.
Included in this package are:
- brief outline/instructions
- 23 famous artworks by many artists (from Renaissance to Post-Modern)
- horizontal and vertical templates that can be printed and made into 11 x 17 copies (ideal for this assignment)
No rubric is included, but aligns very well with the Ontario Arts Curriculum.
