Era of Medici

You have the opportunity to learn about important Renaissance works of art. The works listed below were created in Florence and Rome, the focus of our work on the Southern Renaissance.

• Everyone reads p. 51 (stop at the gold florins) for every topic except those reading about Cosimo de Medici.
• Read your assigned section from the text (see below).
• One person in your group - listed in BOLD font - should create a Google Doc for your assigned topic. That person is responsible for sharing it with group members and with me. (Please send me the email notification.)
Among your team, write a 1-paragraph summary from your assigned section. Be sure to include the most important ideas but be concise!
• Include images (with full URL citation) of any artwork or buildings mentioned in your assigned text section.
• Please click on the link(s) assigned to learn more about your topic. Some are Khan Academy links to works of art, while others provide more information about your topic. (You may seek out other resources if you wish, but the links provided here will be very helpful.)
• Everyone in your group should contribute to your summary and images.

In our next (or upcoming) class, I will project an image and ask members of your group to get up and explain more about your topic and image(s). No written art annotation is due; this will be a brief oral presentation. Note: if your group contains two works of art (ex. Botticelli), you are responsible for both works of art.

High Renaissance Art

You have the opportunity to learn about important Renaissance works of art. You will complete your final art annotation of the year on the work of art assigned to you below. You should incorporate ideas from the chapter on Renaissance art, the links below, plus any other resources you would like to include. This final art annotation will be done in class; you will have 30 minutes to complete it. After the written annotations, I will project an image of the artwork and ask you and other members of your group to get up and annotate the artwork (plan for a 3-5 minute presentation).
