As a parent, artist, and art teacher, my wish is that every child could identify great works of art, understand the artist and art movement of the period, and posess the ability to recognize characteristics and historical timeframe of their work.
This handwritten, hand-drawn labor of love is just the start of my journey to attain this goal.
Learn, through a brief explanation, what makes the artist and their work, unique and important. The five lessons each includes a coloring page, photo of the work, colored examples with drawing and/or coloring tips, vocabulary worksheets, writing prompt, and comprehension exercises.
Part 1 covers five iconic works from the Paleolithic period to the Renaissance, including:
" Detail of Horse" Caves of Lascaux, France - thought to be the first works of art, estimated to be 17,000 years old
"Burial Mask of Tutankhamen" - Egyptian Art, Egypt, 1333
"Pieta" by Michelangelo - Early Renaissance, Italy, 1498-99
"Rhinoceros" Albrect Durer - Observational Art, German, 1502
"La Giocando" ("The Mona Lisa") - Leonardo daVinci, Classical Renaissance, Italy, 1503
Includes an answer key along with a coloring page of the five works combined into one, and an exercise to identify each masterpiece.
Anyone can learn how to view and understand art. Learning visually about our rich, cultural history, we gain a better understanding and appreciation of all people and the world we live in.
I always appreciate your feedback and I hope you'll take a look at my other offerings.
