Pediment Poses

Objectives
  • Create works inspired by history
  • Integrate modern technology to create art
  • Explore architecture as a functional and decorative art form.
Preparation
  • Select visuals
  • Photocopy templates
  • Photograph students posing as the God/dess of something during previous lesson
 I budgeted two weeks for this lesson, having taught the art history component the week before and having students pose for their pictures. During the first week they cut out the pictures and glued them down. During the second session, the students learned about the three orders and embellished the capitals of each column, including the fluting. They also added a title and embellishments to the entablature and pediment if desired. I only allowed black or shades of gray marker because we discussed the columns would show their detail through light and shadow.
