The Renaissance Revealed
Old traditions were replaced with new ideas during the diverse span of the Renaissance (1400-1600). Join us monthly in recognizing notable lives that shaped the modern world. Through an interactive, 75-minute lesson and related art activity, students 5-14 will discover the lasting impact these individuals left on history, science, thought, and, of course, art!
Each lesson is open to both elementary and middle school students. Parent attendance is optional. Review our FAQs, which cover arrival and even co-op questions.
