This lesson plan gives students the opportunity to learn about Giotto, the Father of Renaissance Art, while they draw the back of a man in a cape, noticing how cloth folds and lays.

Since we study Ancient History through Renaissance History in cycle 1 of Classical Conversations, this project works great for the cycle 1 week 13, 30 minute art project.

This 17 page lesson plan includes the following:

  • A condensed background on the artist and his paintings
  • 8 printable pictures of Giotto’s work
  • 1 portrait of the artist
  • 1 printable picture of a typical Medieval artwork, for comparison
  • A carefully crafted sentence about Giotto (ideal for memorization)
  • A simple explanation of how to draw clothing
  • Sample Clothing Hem Lines printable
  • Vocabulary words and definitions
  • References to additional resources
  • Simple art project instructions
  • Materials list (This project can be done with pencil, marker, colored pencil, or paint.)
  • Options for scaling the art project up or down depending on the experience level of your art students
  • Step-by-step pictorial instructions for how to “Draw a Cape” and how to “Draw a Flag”
  • 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.
