Renaissance Art Experience

Arts History is a new course being offered to Rancho Christian High School students this year. This particular unit in Arts History was spent exploring the Renaissance Era and a number of projects helped students explore this significant time in world history.

Last week, Students each chose a different artist from the era and talked with classmates about what they contributed to art and the world. This week, students selected a Bible story that they wanted to explore through art then painted those stories on our a "ceiling" (aka student desks), paying homage to the Sistine Chapel. Students painted flat on their backs while their paper was taped to the bottom of the desks. We even listened to music from the Renaissance Era while we worked.
