Students are asked to choose their own “patron saint.” Students should use From Abacus to Zeus and other available resources to choose a saint.
Students should produce an image of the saint in a medieval or Byzantine art style.
Students must submit a 1-page document explaining why they chose the depicted saint, how they chose to represent him/her, and which style they imitated in their image.
Students may choose from any medieval or Byzantine art style, including manuscripts, mosaic, panel-work, tapestry, etc.
Descriptions should demonstrate an understanding of the saint him or herself, and an understanding of the different and diverse art-making traditions associated with western Europe in the medieval period and the art of the Byzantine empire.
