Medieval Masterpieces

E&I Program: 
Distance Learning
Grade level : 
7 to 12

In these teacher materials, and during the videoconference, students will learn that the Medieval time period is rich both intellectually and spiritually, a point that can be observed through the examination of religious and secular artwork. Students will understand the connection between religion and art in the Middle Ages, and discuss the various methods that artists employ to communicate effectively to a vastly illiterate public.  Extension activities include instructions for creating an illuminated manuscript and writing in calligraphy.
