We have been reading the literature of the Renaissance and studying the revolutionary results of the Renaissance.  Now we are going to take an in-depth look at the art of the Renaissance and see if we can make some connections between art and literature and history.  This project counts for both History and English credit.

Directions:  Working in a group, you will research an artist and then put together a presentation in which you present, visually as well as orally, the artist’s contribution to the world of Renaissance art.  Working individually, each group member will study and write about a specific work of art and complete a writing assignment that links the artist to the greater philosophical and historical ideas and events of the Renaissance.
