Art Era Timeline #1 ~ Pre-Renaissance to 18th Century

I created Art Movements Timelines

Due to the size of the files I have broken the timeline into 4 sections:

  • Pre-Renaissance – 18th Century
  • 19th Century to Late 19th Century
  • 20th Century till Modern Art
  • Modern Art Movements

This week’s Timeline is Pre-Renaissance – 18th Century

I have provided a basic definition of each art movement and included the dates and  names of  the founders and the most eminent artists of that movement. Each artist has a thumbnail of their work. I have placed each art movement on a new page for clarity and to assist the study of different eras.

Use the timeline in several ways:

  • Print out as an Art Book of Centuries, or add to a student’s own Book of Centuries
  • Cut and paste the pages end-to-end as an art timeline
  • Cut out and add the artists and their art work thumbnails to a dedicated art timeline or an existing timeline
  • Laminate and cut the artists as cards and let children match the artists to the eras
