08. The Renaissance: 1450 - 1700 A.D. (cc)

"Highly Recommended. A captioned list of materials and brief introduction precede the respective Renaissance era crafts, which are taught by different, equally skilled instructors. Overhead cameras allow viewers to easily follow the demonstrations. The projects are a key wall design, a framed stained-glass picture, a bookmark and bookplate, a paper collage, and a floral-decorated glass container. An adult would need to supervise the project that requires baking and glass cutting." -Booklist
Five projects that date back to the days of the Renaissance. Projects include: Milano Keys - Milano silversmiths were known for their intricate lock and key designs. Venetian Glass - The Fleur de lis or lily is the city emblem of Florence, where the Medici family was a patron of the arts and ruled the city. Venetian glass came to prominence during the Middle Ages and continued during the rebirth of the arts during the Renaissance. Book Mark - The printing press, developed by Johann Gutenberg in 1450, made the mass production of books possible, and is often considered one of the inventions that began the Renaissance. Landscape - Many times symbols existed in the backgrounds of famous landscapes of the renaissance. Landscapes were scenes of country life that became popular during the 15th century as wealthy families went to the countryside for vacation. Millifiori - This term means "thousands of flowers." It is another name for mosaic beads, where designs and colors are fused together. 05/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
