· Unit 1.1 Discussion: Examine and Extend

The ancient artifacts from the Stone Age reflect the people’s beliefs, rituals, and lifestyle. Examine an artifact of your choosing, and consider its meaning; then, choose a sculptural or architectural artifact for your discussion posting. Within your response, question the implications of both artifacts, and extend your knowledge by evaluating others’ input.

Discussion Criteria (shown in first Unit - please use throughout the course): You are expected to activelyparticipate in all discussion board forums with a minimum of 1 posting of evidence/experience backed comments and a minimum of 2 postings of replies to learning colleagues’ comments perquestion. Your initial reply should be posted by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday to allow for discussion and replies throughout the remainder of the week. All replies (participation) to others must be posted by11:59 p.m. on Sunday. Any comment or reply submitted after these deadlines will not receive credit.

· Unit 1.2 Discussion: Exploring

Imagine you are hiking through the French countryside, and you stumble upon an ancient Paleolithic cave, filled with ancient paintings.

Using theBradshaw Foundation site, select one of the caves to explore. Create an explorer's log describing what you discover; relate the images to what you know about the Stone Age, and summarize how these images illustrate their civilization's ways of life.

Follow Discussion Criteria by replying to at least two other learning colleagues; discussing the differences and similarities of your explorations. Be creative! Include an APA formatted reference to your cave.

· Unit 2.1 Discussion: Changing Perspective

Everyone recognizes art from Ancient Egypt! It is so recognizable and memorable. The Pyramids at Giza even made an appearance in Despicable Me! For this discussion, reflect on your previous exposure and opinion of Egyptian Art, and explain what you originally thought of it. Then, evaluate the new information learned and illustrate your new ability to interpret this artwork.

Discuss with your learning colleagues how your outlook has changed or perhaps, stayed the same. Follow the discussion criteria set forth in the first Unit.

· Unit 2.2 Discussion: Compare and Contrast

Egyptian Art is easily recognizable, due to its extensive use of a canon. In contrast, the images from the Dynasty of Ahkenaten and Nefretiti stray from this tradition of image-making and become a new standard. Compare and contrast the traditional images of Egyptian Art with that of the bust of Queen Nefretiti. Differentiate what was expected from their traditional canon with what was created for this unique team of rulers.

· Unit 3.1 Discussion: Ancient Greek Speculation

The Ancient Greeks had an expertise in creating architectural masterpieces, impressive in execution and stature. Speculate on their building capabilities, and observe how the finished products illustrate their artistic tendencies.

· Unit 3.2 Discussion: Ancient Greek Interpretation

The development of life-like sculptures in the Ancient Greek civilization was impressive to say the least! What started as knowledge learned from the Egyptians, developed into a sophisticated skill of turning marble into “life”. After looking at the sculptures from this Age, discuss your interpretation of their beauty, and how that beauty may or may not reflect current interpretations of human beauty.

    • FileRubric for Unit 3 Written Assignment (52.968 KB)

      This is the first part of your Art History course project. Each part will be built upon the concepts and topics you are learning. Only content from Unit 3 is required to compare modern architecture with the course content, however, you are encouraged to create a personal collection of images where you can make your own conclusions of the work, comparing/contrasting to what you like. A draft of your project covering content from the first three Units will be due for review, and feedback will help to guide you towards creating a dynamic final presentation.

      For this piece, you are going to discover the architecture in your community! Take some time to explore your hometown, and take a close look at the architecture of the buildings. Chances are, you will notice that there are still many design elements created by the Ancient Greek that are still used today. Take pictures of the details you find that remind you of the Ancient Greeks, and describe what you see. Try to find 4-6 different images to talk about. It doesn't have to be 4-6 buildings: look for 4-6 details on buildings. Common places where you might find these details are: town halls, banks, churches, even some houses. Present your discoveries in a PowerPoint presentation, complete with titles for the images, and a description for each.

      Unit 4.1 Discussion: Differentiate

      The art of the Roman Empire has many consistencies with that of the Ancient Greeks, yet so much of its purpose and creation is different. Choose an example from the Romans, and differentiate between the traditional Greek designs and the Roman’s purpose. Focus on the style of the piece, and ask how this artwork reflects the new Empire while preserving past tradition of art.

      Unit 4.2 Discussion: Digging Deeper

      This Unit on the Ancient Roman Empire is extensive and awe-inspiring, much like the Empire itself in its prime. Take this opportunity to select one element from this Unit to investigate closer. Dig deeper into the history of a specific piece of art or architecture. Have an interest in mythology? Use the sculpture as a medium to explore the mythological stories that fueled the civilization. Curious about the gladiator games? Evaluate the Colosseum, and observe the stories that form the history. Or perhaps you are a history buff, with

      an interest in war strategies, conquest, and empirical rule. Find something that speaks to you, and share those interests and how the piece you chose impacts your own life.

      Unit 5.1 Discussion: Aesthetic Qualities

      It is pretty clear that the artwork of the Early Christians looks vastly different from what we’ve covered in the first half of this class. What do you think of it? Discuss the aesthetic qualities of this work, and evaluate what it is you like and do not like about it. Believe it or not, this history has had a hand in our present day estimation of beauty.

      Unit 5.2 Discussion: Historical Debate

      Creating images of Christ was a challenging issue in the Early Christian period. When you see images of Christ; even today, chances are his face is instantly recognizable, for many reasons, that were created in this historical time period. After reviewing the resources on icons, discuss this historical debate. Relate it to any personal knowledge you may have, and pose questions as this is a very tricky issue! Remain respectful of everyone's opinions and try to utilize peer reviewed resources to support your own position.

      Unit 5 Course Project Part 2

    • FileUnit 5 Course Project Part 2 Rubric (48.742 KB)

      This week you will submit Part 2 of your course project and it will be used to cover the content from Unit 4 and Unit 5. An updated draft of the project covering Units 1-5 is due for review, and feedback will be provided to further guide you through the final project.

      To add to your project, take a virtual trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (see your resources for a link)! Navigate their site and search for an artifact from their Early Christian/Byzantine collections. Choose an item (or items if you want to explore more than one!), and write an short essay about it. Observe its traits, identify the origin, and interpret its execution and symbolism in regards to the time’s artistic tendencies and religious trends. Illustrate your knowledge of the art by evaluating an artifact of your liking!

      Don't forget to add images to your PowerPoint presentation from this virtual trip and to incorporate the art from Unit 4 as well!

      Unit 6.1 Discussion: Illuminated Manuscripts

      Many of the artifacts from this time period are small, portable objects, created with luxurious materials. Most artifacts of this nature are illuminated manuscripts, created with the utmost of care with the best materials available. These books were used to teach the people about the Christian doctrine because most commoners could not read the Bibles themselves. Put yourself in their shoes: after seeing these items, would you be swayed? How do you think these art objects identify Christianity?

      Unit 6.2 Discussion: Ottonian Imagery

      Ottonian Art has imagery that is a little different than what we have seen so far. Even though it is still images of government leaders and Christian thought, the human features are, let’s face it: a little weird. This new trend in imagery is actually an attempt to create emotion. Is it successful in that respect? What do you think has emotional energy, and what does not?

      Unit 7.1 Discussion: Striking Fear via Art

      The most common form of decoration outside of the Romanesque Cathedrals was images of the Second Coming of Christ, the proverbial moment when Christ returns to earth, condemns the evil to hell and rewards the good with heaven. These images are scary, meant to strike fear in the commoners to do good. How would you have reacted to these images in this time? Would they scare you into following the Christian path, or do you think this tactic is ineffective? Justify your opinions with examples and personal experiences.

      Unit 7.2 Discussion: Evaluation of Romanesque Art

      There were many prominent monasteries in the Romanesque period that thrived in their own rights and established a relationship with the masses. Consider these prominent monasteries, discuss their art and cathedrals and how they helped establish Christianity through architecture and illuminated manuscripts. Investigate one specific art example, and use your evaluation to conclude how this item in fact helps to establish this important relationship.

      In this Unit, you will submit, by the end of day Friday, a rough draft of the course project written document that will accompany your art presentation. You will also include a draft of the presentation, covering Units 1-7 for review and feedback. Utilize the grading rubric to guide you through this rough draft and remember, the earlier you submit this; the faster you will receive feedback from your instructor!

      To add to your written and visual piece, the Unit 7 Course project #3 submission criteria is as follows:

      The architecture of the Romanesque period had significant influences from the Ancient Romans. Do these Romanesque buildings remind you of anything from the Ancient Roman Unit? Do you see similarities within these buildings that are alike you’re your architectural search of your community in Unit 3? Choose one Romanesque feature of architecture, be it an entire structure or a specific detail, and compare/contrast it with one from the Ancient World. Interpret how the Romanesque period used the influence from the Ancients to create a new system for Christianity.

      Unit 8.1 Discussion: Gothic Grandeur

      The elaborate system of creating Gothic Cathedrals exploded over Europe in a matter of 100 years. Considering the new building methods discovered, examine the competitive nature the cities at this time had and discuss how their individual attempts at achieving the greatest cathedral build established a universal quest for grandeur and splendor through Gothic architecture.

      Unit 8.2 Discussion: Jewel Box Interiors

      The process of creating stained glass windows is a fascinating and delicate art medium. Have you ever seen an artist or craftsperson make hand-blown glass? Did you ever think about where the colors come from, or how these great achievements were assembled and held together? Discuss your interpretation of this process, identify any past experiences with it if any, and consider how this art form created jewel-box interiors in the Gothic Cathedrals
