This six-day institute provides K-12 teachers, of all subjects, with an opportunity to strengthen their existing knowledge of art history and gain new knowledge while exploring ways to integrate visual art into the classroom. As a participant of this seminar, you will examine the visual art of the Renaissance and study works by artists that lead the Renaissance era. You will explore the development of techniques used in oil-painting and the impact those made on artists seeking a naturalistic visual effect and much more.
The goals for this institute include:
- Provide an introduction to Italian and Northern Renaissance art and social history from the 1300s through the 1500s;
- Examine and compare artistic techniques and subjects as influenced by Renaissance ideals in both Italy and the Netherlands;
- Foster an understanding of painting as an artistic creation and of period techniques of fabrication;
- Encourage the use of works of art as primary sources in classroom instruction;
- Share models for incorporating art into interdisciplinary teaching and strengthen students’ visual literacy.
