Beauty & Aesthetic - “How do visual arts affect us individually and collectively?"

For more information about this unit, please visit my blog.

This bundle contains a French AP thematic unit centered around 19th century painting:

1. Identify major 19th century artistic movements and painters

I chose the 19th century because it is such a prolific century! I use cultural pre and post tests, so that students may see how much they had learned about 19th century paintings at the end of the unit.

2. Discuss how visual arts affect us and the world around us through the viewing of authentic texts/videos, and the analysis of paintings

I show my students paintings from various movements and we talk about them either as a whole class, in small groups, or in pairs.

3. Organize and lead a self-guided tour of an Art Museum (If possible that had 19th century paintings)

Students prepare a self-guided tour of the art museum (European Wing)

4. Final assessment

In pairs, students have 5 min to freely discuss a painting from one of the movements we have studied in class. While I choose painters they know, I give them paintings they have never seen. I am looking for:

maintaining the exchange
cultural understanding
stating and supporting opinions
rich and varied vocabulary
