History Through Art Timeline & Guide
Jeffry Uecker

15 feet of Art History!

Works of art are more than just illustrations; they are historical documents which contain fascinating and important information about the human experience. By analyzing works of art against their historical backdrop, History Through Art Timeline helps students increase their visual literacy as they broaden their historical perspective.

Centered around a series of inquiry-based exercises and 43 works of art, History Through Art Timeline consists of three components:
  • A durable and dramatic classroom timeline visually links historical events with specific works of art. Timeline from 16,000 B.C. through present.
  • A practical Teacher's Guide explores the historical and cultural clues held by each work of art. Keywords, studio activities, and reproducible pages for students are some of the features included.

This dynamic classroom resource will invigorate and extend any history/social studies curriculum.
