Before beginning this Art Journal, be sure to view the supplement Web Link A Very British Renaissance.
This documentary sets out to show that with the help of some important non-English people, England was able to partake in a Renaissance of its very own. The Renaissance in England has often been forgotten or ignored, and some very interesting light has been shed in this film.
Journal Questions:
Describe which artwork/s or segment/s made strong impressions upon you while watching the film. You are not limited to just one.
How did the artwork/s or segment/s make you feel and/or think of?
Did this film open your eyes or challenge your views regarding the period in which historians have dubbed the Renaissance?
Do not go to Google for answers to the questions or supporting information. The journal experience is about you telling me your very own thoughts and opinions while viewing the documentary film.
If any portion of your entry is not yours, meaning you used/referred to other sources, your journal entry will receive a zero.
Writing your Essay:
Write a short essay that answers the above questions and provide comments about your own viewing experience.
Quality is better than quantity. Be sure to stay on task. Citing and quoting from the film may prove helpful as does referring to particular time segments (at 12:16 when such and such is mentioned) when the name of the artwork might be in question or to better support your idea. The purpose of this exercise is to promote critical thinking. Be sure to provide detailed and supportive answers.
The best method for entering your essays into canvas is to cut and paste them after they have been through spell checking and translating.
