I know I said I was going to take a break for the month of October but before I close up the homeschool shop, I wanted to finalize my unit two art and music appreciation plans for the weeks after we come back from our break. It is helpful to put it all down in a post so I can refer to it later if I need to jog my memory.
As we go through the units of Tapestry Grace Year Two, I am refining my projects a bit so they are able to done in two forty-five minute sessions each week. The boys complete these on Monday and Friday afternoons and it is a refreshing break from the academics of the week.
Here are my ideas and plans for unit two. My boys are 13 and 15 so take that into account when you are reading through my plans. 🙂
Week 11:Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello Picture Study-print out one painting and copy a portion of it for your notebook.
Week 12: Leonardo da Vinci Stained Glass Project-Use Dover Stained Glass Coloring Book Complete at least one page with watercolors or Prismacolor markers using the internet as a reference for color. Hang on a window of your choice.
Week 13: Michelangelo Reproduction: Lesson Plan on Teach Art At Home
Week 14: Venetian Painting: Project on Aerial Perspective, pages 37 and 38 only. We are going to read through the whole document but the two pages noted are the only “assignment” we are going to complete.
Week 15 and 16: (Use the two weeks’ class time and the weekends) Photography Project
The boys will take photos and pick one for each category to print, mount, and display at our unit celebration.
Week 17, 18, and 19: Baroque Artist Project: We are going to adapt this lesson plan to make a mini exhibit and a museum guide to go with the exhibit for a Baroque artist. See steps 4 and 5 of the lesson plan. The boys will be choosing from these artists: Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, or Steen. These will be displayed at our unit celebration.
Weeks 11 and 12: Madrigal music project
Weeks 13 through 18 Renaissance music and Renaissance instruments project
Here is a link to the lesson plans in PDF format for these two projects.
