Intermediate Art: World B is designed to complement the World History: Our Modern World, 1400 to 1917 course. Following the timeline of the K12 History program, lessons introduce students to the artists, cultures, and great works of world art and architecture from Renaissance through modern times. Students will: Study and create various works of art from the Renaissance and beyond. Discover great works of art and see how they influenced later artists. Compare and contrast works from many civilizations, from paintings to sculpture, architecture, book covers, prints, and more. Analyze how artists use elements like color and shape, and principles like balance and pattern, to create pleasing designs and compositions. Study the various techniques and processes to produce different effects in drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures. Learn how artists decorate objects like book covers, wallpaper, and fabrics. Create artworks inspired by works they learn about, using many materials and techniques; for example, after studying the Tempietto by Bramante and Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright, students design their own model of a building. And after studying expressive portrait paintings by Rembrandt, Judith Leyster, and Pablo Picasso, they make expressive self-portraits.
