This 24 slide PowerPoint presentation exposes the student to the major artists/artworks from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance art period. It is a part of an Art History unit I have developed covering important art periods, major artists and the development of art. The title slide lists all of the periods I have included in the unit, also at the end of the presentation I have included timelines showing all art periods the unit covers. This section is 24 slides long and is a combination of 2 Power Point presentations I have listed on TpT. It focuses on the development of bookmaking, manuscripts and illuminated letters during Medieval times and then on how the Renaissance matured through 3 major periods and the artists important to this incredible period of creativity. I use several YouTube videos links, one showing how to mix egg tempera paint and another of illuminated letter images. Early on I have a link to a scene of a Monty Python movie which has decorated armor in the costumes. This scene always catches the students interest and leads into images of art artifacts similar to what they have just seen. The student realizes that this time period is one the know of and piques their interest. In the beginning of the Renaissance section I have a link to a You Tube video of the opening sequence from Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles to hook the student in. I have always been amazed how once I start the music that the students can tell me the major artists from this period of art. The bulk of the Middle Ages section is on Medieval manuscripts and guides the student to create an illuminated letter. This PowerPoint helps the student understand the craft of bookmaking, the art of illuminated letters and their place in the history of art. The Renaissance portion focuses on the major artists and shows images of their artwork. Artist included are Lorenzo Ghiberti, Fillippo Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo DaVinci, and Raphael. I use these slides to point out the influence each artist had and what they should be remembered for.
