- Review transition from the trecento through the cinquecento
- Discuss plans for Thursday
THURSDAY: You will have a substitute
- Basically, this is a self-study/review day:
- Access the Chapter 21 presentation in itslearning. Read, take notes, and use the video links to provide added context and information (having ear buds will be helpful for this task). Compare this info. to what is contained in the packet.
- In addition to the packet, use the text and the other presentations (also in itslearning) to review the transtion from the Trecento through the Cinquecento (chapters 18, 20, and 21).
- Tomorrow's quiz will cover this content (yes, I know I said it wouldn't...but....I'll keep the references to later content general and will use the packet as a guide. Please try to have a handle on how the Proto, Early, High, and Late Renaissance (Mannerism) differ).
- See also the Study Guide page.
- You may do this work in a location that is most suitable for productive study. Those with laptops don't really need to go anywhere and I encourage you to get right to it so as to fully utilize the full class period. I didn't write any of this for the sub...I just wrote "have them check the website" so you may need to show this post as clarification re: what you are supposed to be doing.
- ALSO: Read Vasari's chapter on Properzia de' Rossi (it's only 3 small pages; I apologize for the weird stapling, you'll figure it out). Directly on the document, jot down your thoughts. Bring this in on Tuesday.
- ALSO: Please complete for Tuesday: "Think About It" # 21.4 OR the "Crosscurrents" question on p. 677. FYI, I am considering using this as an essay component to be added to the quiz = a test grade.
FRIDAY: You will have a substitute
- QUIZ - Trecento through Cinquecento - Part 1 (do Part 2 later/at home)
- Chapters 18, 20, and 21 cover Late Gothic/Proto-Renaissance and Early, High, Late Renaissance through Mannerism. While the content will be abridged for the sake of time, reading through the chapters will give you an overview (or review) of the time period and the context in which art was being produced.
- In addition to the text, review Study Guide and Supplemental Info. pages as preparation for a test or quiz this week
- DUE Tuesday: Read Vasari's chapter on Properzia de' Rossi (it's only 3 small pages; I apologize for the weird stapling, you'll figure it out). Directly on the document, jot down your thoughts.
- DUE Thursday: "Think About It" # 21.4 OR the Crosscurrents on p. 677.
- Ongoing....due date coming soon....READ THIS. Then flip through chapters 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29. Combine these two exercises to set the stage to understand the goal for the remainder of the year: "Use the foundation that has been (will continue to be) set re: universal themes in the production of art and architecture as a way to connect to other cultures and to contemporary times." That's a tall order...additional details will be forthcoming but, to start, use the content provided in these chapters and the "Think About It" and "Crosscurrents" questions to find what piques your interest and to help guide you to what will be your Semester 2 project topic.

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.
