Monday we will begin a study of the Renaissance. The Renaissance began in the 14th century in central & northern Italy with Florence being the most important city. We will discuss the origins and ideas central to the Renaissance as well as the major artists & writers. We will also examine in groups individual paintings looking for ideas & themes common to the Renaissance. Later we will examine how the Renaissance spread to northern Europe and the impact it had there. See below for links to Powerpoints and assignments. Monday you will be given an organizer to research important significant people of the Renaissance.
Research the people given on the sheet and complete the organizer. Research the people on the organizer and then pick 4 more from the people listed on the back of the paper(2nd page) for a total of 10. Information listed should be summarized, brief and complete.
