AP Find Me: Renaissance and Baroque Concepts

Your assignment is to find images that demonstrate each of the following terms or techniques.  Some of these terms we have covered, but some we have not yet so you will have to do some light researching.

For the images I only want graphic, advertising, popular, or contemporary art.  I do not want any images that could be associated with fine art, your textbook, or anyone who died before 1990.  I want you to see that the art terms we are learning about are still vital and being used today.  Good sources include magazines, comic books and graphic novels, stills from games and movies, and the vast internet.

You may submit this as a PowerPoint, Prezi, Word document, or even as a set of index cards.  However you choose, be sure to include the term, the image, and a brief definition.

  • Contrapposto
  • Fete Galante
  • Genre (the everyday)
  • Portraiture

Due by Monday, 2/25, by 11 pm.  This is a formative grade.
