Dive into the world of art adventures! We will begin with the Black Plague, how disaster can sometimes mean rebirth of beauty and creativity. We will focus on the artwork and lives of Botticelli, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. We will talk about many other artists, explore the cities of Florence, Venice and Rome and their landmarks. Later in the year we will examine how Renaissance ideas spread around Europe, learning about Gutenberg’s printing press, Shakespeare, and new scientific ideas. Many art projects, science experiments, history and fun!
