Link to Online Textbook (World History 2 – Mr. Stewart)

While my class is based on materials that I have assembled and/or created myself, sometimes it’s good to have a textbook to use as a reference for study or review.

Link to online World History Textbook

I will be sure to reference what chapter(s) attach to what we are doing in class so you have that reliable resource to complement our work in the classroom.

Happy Reading!!

Art August 20-24


Monkeys as Judges of Art, 1889 Gabriel von Max

Students will discus their illustration of Elements and Principles of Art using art vocabulary learned in class. They will present their artwork to their classmates and respectfully make observations to their classmates’ artwork.

Art criticism is the discussion or evaluation of visual art. It is usual to criticize art in the context of aesthetics or the theory of design. A goal of art criticism is the pursuit of a rational basis for art appreciation.

It is important to keep in mind when criticizing art to:

Be attentive

Be respectful

Be objective

Don’t use lazy words
