Rating
3.8 stars

Artists are often particularly keen observers and precise recorders of the physical conditions of the natural world. As a result, paintings can be good resources for learning about ecology. Teachers can use this lesson to examine with students the interrelationship of geography, natural resources, and climate and their effects on daily life. It also addresses the roles students can take in caring for the environment. Students will look at paintings that represent cool temperate, warm temperate, and tropical climates.
In this lesson students will: Identify natural resources found in particular geographic areas; Discuss ways in which climate, natural resources, and geography affect daily life; Apply critical-thinking skills to consider the various choices artists have made in their representations of the natural world; Make personal connections to the theme by discussing ways they can be environmental stewards; Identify natural resources found in particular geographic areas; Discuss ways in which climate, natural resources, and geography affect daily life; Apply critical-thinking skills to consider the various choices artists have made in their representations of the natural world; Make personal connections to the theme by discussing ways they can be environmental stewards.

It is intended as module reading for an undergraduate level introduction to art. I have uploaded it as individual pdfs to make its inclusion in LMS modules easier but if an educator chose to compress into a single document they would be welcome.

Very good resource for introductory art history and art appreciation courses. The initial chapter is limited but the art history sections are very comprehensive in terms of cultures and periods covered.

Section breakdowns include learning objectives, key points, and key terms. The illustrations are good, some additional texts and materials were required, but this provides a good basis for an OER text.

The level is an introductory course, undergraduate.

This resource is a complete course in art appreciation/art history for an art 100 or arthist 101 level. It is most complete in its art history sections including non-Western art. The introductory materials on techniques and media are not as comprehensive, but the art period overviews are very good. There is a complete list of sources, licenses, and attributions located at the end of every module. This resource lends itself to inclusion in a modular fashion and there is a fee-based LMS integration available if desired. Quiz files and lecture slides are also available, although that may also be on a fee-basis.
