Learn about Giotto and how to draw fabric.

(Info about permissions)


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.
