In-depth, semester long art history class for middle and high school students, exploring the arts and artists of the Baroque period, Impressionism, and a number of Modern art movements!
US Grade 9 - 12
In this class, students will explore the development of artistic production throughout world history over the course of ten weeks, starting with the Baroque movement of the 16th century, continuing through the break with academic art tradition and the emergence of Impressionism, and finishing with an exploration of art in the Contemporary period. This class is designed for students aged 13-18 as a way of exploring world history through the arts. Each week, students will attend a 50 minute...
Students will learn the following things in this course: --How to talk about and describe art, both verbally and in written form --The characteristics of art of different movements and cultures --How to think critically about art and images that are presented to you --How art fits into a larger historical context and how world events shape art production
I have been teaching art history for seven years now and have a Master's Degree in Art History. I started my career teaching at the university level and in museums and have been teaching art history on Outschool since 2018. I developed this introductory series for middle and high schoolers so that they could have a foundation for talking about the arts earlier than at the college level and be exposed to history in a new way!
Homework OfferedEach week, students will respond to questions that correlate with the week's topics in 1-2 paragraphs. There are two larger writing assignments--one visual analysis where the student describes a work of art in detail and one short research paper where the students selects and artist and explores their biography and one of their works in relation to their biography.
