PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engage your students with art, history, writing, and critical thinking with the Double Feature series! Each Feature compares two masterworks with similar subject matter on a Venn diagram. By examining the visual differences and background information, students gain deeper insight into great works of art. Forget boring worksheets and textbooks, and ask students to really look, to notice details, and to organize and differentiate those details.

My students' favorite part was the physical poll, where they move to different areas of the room to vote on their favorite painting.

This Double Feature compares Leonardo's La Gioconda to Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring. Students will learn about portraits, Renaissance and Baroque art. Use this activity in a fine arts class, or in social studies, history, or writing.
