Renaissance Reimagined: Medieval History through art
Join us as we travel across the pond and centuries back to a place of Kings Queens, Peasants & Nobility. Creative Creatures & Co., using ‘Story of the World: Medieval Ages’ as our guide, is excited to offer a new look on traditional art history. Every 2 weeks, students will not only study an important focus of the Medieval time period (from early, high and late middle ages) but also create works of art inspired by the artisans of the time. We will be using art tools straight from the 5th-15th century as we learn to make our paint, dye our own fabric, hammer our own metal and apply gold leafing to our work.
Since our time in class is only 1 hour a week and we don't give homework we encourage our families to purchase the SOTW book and read or have your student read the chapters we are learning about (Curriculums with chapters will be sent out before the semester starts). If you wish to follow along with us this year, I recommend the Story of the World book: Volume II: Middle Ages by Susan Wise Bauer. I also recommend the activity book, it is such a great book filled with recipes, map work, craft projects, stories and questions relating to the Medieval Times and is a great way to dive into the history outside of our class! Optional but very fun!!
