Product Description
Art history is a vital part of a well-rounded art education. This file includes a high school appropriate lecture to teach about ancient Greek culture and art with a focus on the concept of contrapposto, which is a weight-shift shown in Greek statues.

This download includes 1 lesson plan, 1 PowerPoint presentations, note organizers for students to complete, and a note organizer key. This is a zip file with a PDF and PowerPoint presentation.

The lecture called, “Opa! Ancient Greek Culture and Art.” This PowerPoint provides background information about ancient Greek artwork and culture, and introduces students to Greek history, including the Archaic Era, the Classic Era, the Hellenistic Era, and the Roman Era. Some of the vocabulary includes: kore, kouros, Archaic Smile, Parthenon, canon, and contrapposto. There is a 2 sided note guide for the students to complete and a key for the instructor to use.

Note: some of the statues featured are unclothed such as Aphrodite de Milos (Venus de Milo).

This lecture would work well in a high school art class before teaching an ancient Greek project. If you want to use this lecture as part of a larger art assignment and don’t want to create your own, don’t purchase this download! Check out Opa! Ancient Greek Culture and Statues Complete Art Project here, which includes another lecture, more lesson plans, and rubrics.
