ATC Art History Cards

Teaching Art History this term and have 6 game art students.  We are in week 5 of a 9 week term.  Last night we talked about Greek and Roman art and I had them use their book to draw inspiration from these so inspirational cultures. Told them to trace iconic images and draw what inspired them.  They were sort of resistant--if it doesn't look like it could be part of a video game they are not that jazzed--but, the thing is--everything around us has been influenced by Greece and Rome.  They all ended up with a nice drawing or two.  Next time I teach this course I'm having them make a card for each of the chapters we cover.  They can end up with 16- 20 inspiration cards in the process.
