Art History Class
Voyagers: Fall 2016
The idea behind these studies is to expose students in the work of each artist so that they are familiar with their style, methods, and images. (No nude pictures will be shown in class.) We will be having open discussions together about our opinions. Upon completion of this curriculum, your student should be able to easily recognize the artwork from each artist studied. They will also have learned different techniques, mediums, and styles as well as have gained an appreciation for art work in general.

-Discuss which artwork they like better and why.
-Have student tell which techniques they chose to use and why.
