$4.99

Learn about El Greco and how to use value and shading to create the illusion of depth

Description

This lesson plan gives students the opportunity to learn about the post-Renaissance artist El Greco, while learning to create value with shading.

Since we study Ancient History through Renaissance History in cycle 1 of Classical Conversations, this project works great for the cycle 1 week 18, 30 minute art project.

This 18 page lesson plan includes the following:

  • A condensed background on the artist and his paintings
  • 10 printable pictures of El Greco’s work including 2 self-portraits
  • A carefully crafted sentence about El Greco (ideal for memorization)
  • A simple explanation of how to use value (shading) to create the illusion of three-dimensions
  • Sample shaded shapes
  • Vocabulary words and definitions
  • References to additional resources
  • Simple art project instructions
  • Materials list
  • Options for scaling the art project up or down depending on the experience level of your art students
  • 3 templates for students to shade
  • Encore suggestions- These are ideas tutors and teachers can offer students for how they can repeat the lesson at home with a fun twist. If you have several hours to complete this art project, you may want to try one of these suggestions in class.

This item is also available, at a discount, within the Renaissance Artist Deluxe Package, which includes 6 lesson plans and is ideal for weeks 13-18 of Fine Arts in a cycle 1 Classical Conversations Foundations community.
