EXPLORE: Renaissance

This student is creating an image for the EXPLORE: Renaissance lesson of our Curriculum.  At this point in the Curriculum, our students have learned many important fundamental skills and are able to create work in a similar manner to those done by the Masters during the Renaissance period.  

During this period, artists used perspective to create the illusion of distance and composed their paintings in such a way to guide the viewer's eye around the image slowly and evenly.
