Hi Lisa, I teach art in grades 1-6 and teach the 6th graders art from the
Middle Ages and Rennaissance.
1. They love doing clay sculpture Gargoyles.
2. Illuminated Manuscripts- using their own initials.
3. Creating their own "coat of arms"
For the Rennaissance period 6th graders love
1. drawing their own invention to help mankind, after we have studied
2. They LOVE doing a "Modern Mona Lisa". They do a contour drawing of her
outside shape and replace her old fashion dress and hair style and
background with a modern up dated look. They can choose to do their own
portrait, a friends or the Mona Lisa.
3. I've also done Renaissance banners out of felt and use Rennaissance
motifs. We used dowels to hang the up. They used their own initials.
4. We of course do 2 point perspective.
5. I've also done portraits in profile, like those done during the
Rennaissance in Italy. They draw each other. Background- landscapes of
towns, cities, or rivers.
Hope I've helped you . Sandy Poos
