In this Early Photography art history lesson, your students will explore the beginnings of photography with a special focus on the daguerreotype and the first moving pictures by Eadweard Muybridge. After studying the art history through interactive learning activities and discussion, students will create a flip book art project inspired by Muybridge’s innovations!
The Early Renaissance powerpoint and activity files are all editable.
★ Early Photography powerpoint
★ Student review sheet
★ Storyboard planning worksheet
The following topics are covered in the Renaissance PowerPoint.
★ How early photographs are different from today
★ How the daguerreotype camera works
★ How photography impacted painting, focusing especially on Thomas Eakins
★ Muybridge’s horse bet and the first moving pictures
★ Flip books
This lesson pairs well with the following lessons also available in my online store:
★ Line Lesson: In the project for the Early Photography lesson, students use gesture line to create movement. This line lesson teaches the different types of line.
★ Impressionism Lesson: I always follow an Early Photography lesson with a lesson on Impressionism, because Impressionist painters were influenced by the invention of the camera.
