Raphael ~ High Renaissance Artist ~ Art History ~ 142 Slides ~ Renaissance Art

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. This is a complete powerpoint presentation of the art of RAPHAEL. ACTUAL SLIDES ARE IN THE SLIDESHOW ON THIS PAGE FOR YOUR REVIEW. TEXT EXCERPT: ~ Raphael was born among artists and the high echelons because his father, Giovanni Santi, was court painter to the Duke of Urbino. He was orphaned by 12, which was not unusual due to short life expectancies. ~ Raphael’s social grace and ease among the high echelons, from being raised at court, helped his career. ~ His first documented work was the Baronci altarpiece for the church of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino in Città di Castello. ~ Raphael led a "nomadic" life, in Northern Italy. A good chunk of that time was spent in Florence, about 1504-08. ~ In 1508, Raphael moved to Rome, where he lived and worked for the rest of his life. ~ His first work in Rome was for the Pope’s Library. ~ outstanding art achievement: The frescoed Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Palace. ~ The School of Athens in the Vatican Stanza della Segnatura is the most well known work of the Raphael Rooms.

Africa ~ Art ~ Art History ~ African ~ Art ~ 152 Slides

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FROM THE SHOW POSTED ON THIS PAGE. These slides give you the best idea of whether the material will suit your needs. Africa is a huge continent with many diverse peoples and cultures. Accordingly, African art is not one type of art. It varies considerably among these peoples. The easiest way of dealing with this continent's art is to break it down into regions. There are still differences to be found within the regions but they aren’t as stark. Thus, there are four regions to consider: Western Africa, Eastern Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa. Because Northern Africa is adjacent to the Middle East, it is Islamic. Thus its art is also Islamic. North African art is thus studied along with Islamic art and not along with African art. African art until very recently did not follow western traditions of painting, on an easel or otherwise. When it turned to painting, it used dyes, textiles, weaving and basketry. Africans also used more perishable materials, such as wood for sculptures. Masks and human figures were and are made by artists throughout these regions, often for religious ceremonies.

100 Acts of Kindness Challenge and Craftivity

Random acts of kindness brought into the classroom. What a wonderful way to celebrate the love in our world as we lead up to Valentine’s Day, yet can be done all year round too. Can you reach 100 acts of kindness and pin 100 Kindness coupons to your wall within the time frame? For each act of kindness witnessed, the children will complete a Kindness coupon for the person who was kind and the coupon is attached to the wall/chart. This 12 printable packet provides the tools to implement an idea that has been going around for quite a few years. 100 Acts of Kindness is a classroom challenge that brings a great awareness into the children’s minds, that it is absolutely wonderful to share caring and love. As the compliments are handed out and the kindness coupons are added to our wall, we can see exactly how much love we bring into the lives of others and, in turn, into our own. The children are able to see, by sharing, that when we show love to others, we feel the love within ourselves. This challenge is designed to be completed within 20 -25 days. ( I usually implement it beginning on Martin Luther King Junior day, and we end it with a Valentines Day celebration. You can do it any time of the year, of course. You will find: • Kindness Coupons to print , that the students will complete as they see acts of kindness being carried out. These are used to track our challenge. • Compliment Coupon: To be completed and handed, or left anonymously, to the recipient. • Quilt tiles: create a classroom Kindness Quilt with the quilt tiles. I like to brainstorm as many words as possible that mean caring and love and gratitude. We write the word in the centre of our tile, colour and display. These activities are perfect for demonstrating and practising the IB PYP Learner Profile traits of Caring, Balanced and Principled, together with the IB Attitudes of Appreciation, Empathy and Cooperation. Enjoy as you help to spread the love!  Susan
Japonism ~ Art History ~ Western Art & Japan Trade Opening ~ 1800s ~ 212 SlidesQuick View

Japonism ~ Art History ~ Western Art & Japan Trade Opening ~ 1800s ~ 212 Slides

Japonism ~ Art History ~ Western Art & Japan Trade Opening ~ 1800s ~ 212 Slides This is a very complete presentation of the Japonism Movement in Art History, which occurred when Western Art was exposed to the opening of Japanese Trade in the 1800s . There are ample slides in the slideshow on this page for a full preview of the product. text excerpt: Japanese trade to the West began in 1859 so that Oriental art and household goods were sold in Europe. Among artists, it was the Japanese Prints which caught their eyes. They were very different from Western art. The colors were much brighter and more exotic. The Japanese also had a different sense of spatial relationships from Westerners. Western artists eagerly adapted the new things they saw in the prints into their own work. Japonism, Japonisme, and Japanomania are the terms for the western craze for Japan. By the turn of the century, Africa followed Japan as the culture craze, just in time to be discovered by the Cubists. Japan showed its art and household goods at the World Fair in London in 1862 and Paris in 1867. Kimonos, fans, parasols, lacquerware, screens and prints became all the rage. text excerpt: Some artists staged Japoneries (Tableaus), which featured models dressed in kimonos amidst Japanese props. This was their idea of adapting their art work to this new Japanese inspiration. These Japoneries look extremely dated, staged and derivative today. Degas and other major artists did not go in that direction. Instead, Degas used the qualities of the Japanese aesthetic and adapted those to his own imagery. Thus, he put his dancers in an elongated pictorial format with an asymmetrical composition. He did NOT put his dancers into kimonos and bedeck them with Japanese props. The successful result is shown below. text excerpt: Although this painting by Monet of his wife Camille is also a Japonerie, it is the only one Monet paints. His others are his own imagery, just like Degas did. The Monets loved Japonism. Claude Monet acquired 250 Japanese prints, which covered the walls of his house in Giverny. Camille wore a kimono around the house. The garden at Giverny is modeled after a Japanese print with the arcing bridge and bamboo. text excerpt: “All my work is based to some extent on Japanese art…" Vincent to his brother Theo from Arles, 15 July 1888

Art Nouveau ~ Art History ~ Art ~ Organic Shape ~ 172 Slides

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. There are ACTUAL SLIDES on this page for your review. These are your best means of assessment. EXCERPT: Art Nouveau 1890-1910 was an international movement. A unique aspect to it was its being more pronounced in the the decorative arts and architecture instead of painting and sculpture. Thus this was an egalitarian art movement. Art Nouveau means "New Art" in French but English speaking countries use the French, calling it Art Nouveau. It did not give the usual preference to painting and sculpture that they were typically given. Instead, all the arts, and especially the decorative ones, came in on an even playing field. This was a modern art movement. People were given a chance to embrace organic and geometric forms instead of the Victorian Era’s heavy, overdone and cumbersome objects. Flowing, natural forms and angular, sleeker contours became an incredibly appealing aesthetic to them. The principle became: function of an object should dictate its form. Art Nouveau & Graphic Art Mass-produced graphics were a significant aspect of the Art Nouveau Movement. Paris-based Czech artist Alphonse Mucha was the initial and key person with his very appealing posters. His posters soon brought other artists into the same realm and their Art Nouveau works were painted, drawn, and printed in the popular formats of advertisements, posters, labels, and magazines. Glass Art was another big part of the movement. Louis Comfort Tiffany in New York became as one with “the Tiffany Lamp.” But his studio’s work was so much more than just the lamps.
All You Need is Love Drama Circle ActivityQuick View

All You Need is Love Drama Circle Activity

Drama and Valentines! It brings out the risk-taking, creativity in all kids and everyone has so much fun! These printable cards are just one of my drama circle activities that I use to practice the trans-disciplinary skills of cooperation, social, communication and thinking to name a few. One card begins the round and each child has to act out the instructions on their card, following on from the previous card. The language within this activity focuses on the IB attitudes and the Learner Profile traits, thus reinforcing the children’s knowledge and understanding of the IB’s academic vocabulary. It is great for literacy centers activties as well as cooperative group work. This drama was designed for my 5th graders as a fun review of the speaking and listening strands. The theme is around an original story about tolerance and acceptance, with humour added. Simply gather the children into a seated circle, shuffle the cards and distribute a card to each child. The start card leads the way and the children have to read their own instructions on their card and then listen and look for the actions and words from the acting of each person so that they know when to take their turn. This is developing listening and observational skills as well as communication, presentation and thiking skills. Not every card requires speaking; some ask only for miming. There are 24 cards within this packet, an instruction card and title card for your centers if you wish. I have also included additional blank cards for your own use. The drama cards can be used for 3rd-7th grade and used within a whole class scenario or smaller groups, where the children are given several task cards to read and act from. Cards marked with a star have less text and therefore can be used with more struggling readers. The concept of drama circles is a great ice-breaking activity or a fun review of the IB language. It works well as a refresher of the trans-disciplinary skills prior to the Exhibition also. You can find more ideas and freebies for the IB PYP on my blog at Enjoy! ~ Susan Powers
