The Arts: Carolingian Art

Weeks 9 and 10 of school we learned about Carolingian Art using Layers of Learning, year 2 unit 6.

We copied scriptures and poems and then illustrated them like monks and scribes did.

We made religious art.

We looked at architecture and identified what had carolingian influence.

We watched a video showing examples of Carolingian architecture.

We talked about epic poems and made up one of our own.

We learned about kennings and came up with some (for example, tiger: savannah pirhanna; whale: water beast).
