A Timeline of Art
Celtic & Gothic Art

During this segment of the Timeline of Art, students in grades 6 - 8 were introduced to the beautiful illuminated manuscripts found in The Book of Kells and to the intricate artwork produced by ancient Celtic artists. Some groups also looked at pictures of and read books about gargoyles and dragons.

All students watched a segment of the "Sister Wendy Story of Painting" video before starting on the projects.

The Projects:
Illuminated Letters
Celtic Cross-Stitch and Needlepoint
Celtic-Inspired Relief Carvings
Celtic & Gothic Resists
Sculpey Gargoyles
