Draw/Paint ends the year with an Art History Project. They choose an artist or era to present to class. So I have changed the bell-ringer to an Art History Timeline. They follow a link to a time period, jot down key pieces of information and then quick sketch.
All information was found on the following sites: wikiart.org; http://www.dummies.com/education/art-appreciation/art-history-timeline/; http://www.ducksters.com/history/art
