Art History Research
Students will do a research project, choosing a movement in art history or an artist. Students will then present to the class. 6th grade covers Ancient Art through the Renaissance, and 7th grade covers Pre-Modern through Post-Modern art. The 8th grade students do individual research projects, choosing an American artist. This project conforms to the new North Carolina Essential Standards in which the art history time periods align with the Social Studies curriculum. It also includes several 21st Century Skills, including student collaborative teams, public speaking, and using technology.
