This is a Powerpoint presentation that covers the main ideas for the RENAISSANCE time period in art history.
I use this with my senior grades - to give them an overview of the main characteristics of it, as well as the main artists involved.
-Characteristics of Renaissance art
-Early VS High Renaissance
-Early Renaissance architecture / sculpture / painting
(Brunelleschi, Ghilberti, Donatello, Campin, Massachio, Boticelli, Mategna)
-High Renaissance architecture / sculpture / painting
(Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian)
-Lots of comparison slides to have students see the amazing PROGRESS that was made during this inspirational art movement
-Little references to keep students engaged - the Ninja Turtles, Justin Bieber, cartoons etc.
I absolutely LOVE art history, so it includes 59 slides - but of course you can edit it to suit your class needs.
I don't make them take loads of notes - I print off Powerpoint slides and have them fill in only some info. Also, it's very image heavy so a lot of slides just have images / discussion comparisons etc.
I break this down into two half period lessons..so that they don't get overwhelmed.
I hope it helps!
