Product Description & Reviews

Who were the artists of the Renaissance? Why do we still learn from Renaissance art? 

The Renaissance Artists with History Projects for Kids introduces readers ages 10 through 15 to the Italian Renaissance as it was experienced by five of the world’s most renowned artists: Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian. Kids learn about the biographies of these Renaissance artists through the perspective of three to four major works of art that not only defined that artist’s career but also created a cultural legacy that still resonates in the world today.

Renaissance artists were not working and living in a vacuum! Instead, their work was informed by the cultural, historical, and political contexts of their time. Renaissance artists were required to serve lengthy apprenticeships in the busy studios of master artists, learning to make brushes, grind pigments, make fresh plaster, and draw. Plus, they had to maintain membership in guilds and keep in mind the pleasures and opinions of the wealthy patrons who funded their art. Being an artist involved much more than making art!

Using an inquiry-based approach to learning, each chapter of The Renaissance Artists includes hands-on activities and open-ended assignments that challenge readers to think critically and creatively about the political and social forces in the time of the Renaissance and today. Get a hands-on experience of the tools of the trade of a Renaissance artist and draw with charcoal, make egg tempera, paint on a ceiling (under a table lined with paper!), experiment with linear perspective, make oil paints, try your hand at portraiture, and more. Fun facts, primary source illustrations, and links to online resources spark an interest in the Renaissance. Even without a time machine, learners can experience the Renaissance 

The Renaissance Artists with History Projects for Kids is one of a set of four books in the Renaissance for Kids series. Other titles in the series are The Renaissance Inventors, The Renaissance Thinkers, and The Renaissance Explorers. Each book introduces five different people who lived and worked from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries and who made significant contributions to the wealth of human knowledge and experience. Hands-on STEAM activities that promote the scientific method or engineering design process, plus fun facts, primary source illustrations, and links to online resources, keep even the most curious kids satisfied!
