Art and Artists
This is a hands-on, project driven class that studies art and artists from the Renaissance to Modern Times. Focusing on a few master artists each week, students will learn about the artists and art movements, and complete a related art project. Through games, discussions, presentations, recorded demonstrations, and virtual field trips, we will explore the elements of art, investigate the art of various cultures, and create artwork inspired by the works we study. With an emphasis on exploring and experimenting with various media, students are exposed to a wide range of materials and techniques. Students will learn to identify and explain the visual elements of artwork — including their own art — in light of a Christian worldview. In addition, students will explore biblical truths reflected in art through the centuries. This class will teach students to appreciate great art while developing creativity and confidence in their own unique abilities.
