- Finish Byzantine, continue Middle Ages
- Use homework (see below) to share/discuss specific works of art that characterize the Medieval time period
FRIDAY: Odd day
- DUE THURS. - This assignment is to be completed on the Facebook group page. The purpose is to share the task of investigating a selection of works that typify those produced during the Middle Ages. Use the assigned image(s) to explain the work of art, summarizing iconographical and contextual information to help clarify its specific style and function. Use additional images as needed or as assigned. The trick here is to summarize - this is not a research paper. Information can be presented in the main post as well as in subsequent comments below and as picture descriptions. Images should be identified with complete credit line information.
- Read Renaissance packet (there will be further instructions...just read for now)
- THURS. = Parent/Teacher conferences, 4 - 7 pm
- Feb. 23 = Art Club/NAHS (alpha-relaxation)
- EVERY TUESDAY IN MARCH = workshops provided by Art Club/NAHS members to celebrate Youth Art Month; open to all - bring your friends
TEST DATES: subject to change!

LUNCHTIME LECTURES. This lecture series is intended to provide knowledge of art-related careers. Even if you do not go on to study art, the exposure to careers that combine art WITH other fields of study should be enlightening as you consider the possibilities for your future. This is a mandatory part of the studio art curriculum but an extra credit opportunity for you!
Requirements: 1) Attendance at the lecture; 2) A typed report (1 - 2 pages), which incorporates both factual information about the lecture itself and reflective thoughts that express your ability to make meaning of the experience; 3) Submission of the report no later than the Friday after the lecture.
