Art History Google Slide Show Presentations


Art History Google Slideshow Presentations


Working in pairs, you will create a brief presentation (15 slides or more) on an art time period including the following information- each person will share ½ of the presentation: 

1. Provide a summary of the style, dates, places this style was known, explain to the class the characteristics of the style and show a variety of artists works that represent this time period and style.  Be sure to include different genders and include names of artists when you share, include the title of the work and the date it was made for each slide… Explain what was famous or unique about the work or artist that you are sharing with the class.


2. What is the art style known for (media/material, themes in the work) 

Identify important artworks associated with the style (show these images in the slides - be sure to share names of artists and titles and dates of work that you share with the class.) 


3. Explain what you feel the artists were trying to communicate (Emotional,      Functional, Formal, or Imitation theory(ies)?) 


4.  Explain what was going on in the world at the time this style was used… what is the context? What was happening during this time period? Historical, political,  social, environmental, religious...etc. What effect did this art style have on society of the time? Was the style accepted or not, explain why or why not.


5. Include references and sources (a bibliography) 


The presentations will be given in order from the oldest to most contemporary dates researched.  All students will need to take written and drawing notes on the styles, artists, and famous artworks from the report.  Your notes will be graded on daily participation and your report will be graded as a report/critique. After all reports are given there will be a test given regarding the styles and artworks presented.


On the day of your presentation, be sure to google share your presentation with me so you can access the slide show from my computer to show on the large screen with the class.  Once you have shared your presentation with me and have presented it in class you will receive your grade.
