Art Timeline!!!

This year we are creating an art timeline to show how art history has progressed from the first form of art to today's contemporary art. We are also using our projects to create a visual art timeline in the room. I put a long string on the wall and at the end of each project I will add one student's project to the timeline with the date. By the end of the year we will have an amazing group timeline!! 4th and 5th grade will start with cave art, from 32,000 years ago. Cave art is the first form of art that we know, and they will continue until the twentieth century. The Junior High group will start at the twentieth century until art from today. They are starting with the artist Henri Rousseau from about 1910. They have already started and they are coming out so beautiful!!! Stay tuned for pictures!!!

  1. I like this art timeline because rather than being linear, it sort of shows the time of the Great Masters as the apex of a swirl that comes back out. I would have thought this was for a Masters thesis, not for a 3rd/4th grade class!
