Western Civilization: Exploring Its Beauty and Horrors
In tenth grade the theme is “Western Civilization: Exploring Its Beauty and Horrors”. During this year students are exposed to the greatest achievements of Western art and architecture while discovering some of the harsh realities of the historical times in which they were created. Students analyze art and architecture from the Greek and Roman periods, to the Renaissance, and to the origins of contemporary European art. Utilizing different approaches, students produced projects using photography, calligraphy, drawings and etchings to illustrate the concepts they studied.
