Students will learn about Byzantine art and history, and what it is like to work for a patron. Students are commissioned by a patron, in this case the animal shelter, to create artwork to their very specific guidelines.
Lesson Plan:Byzantine Lesson Plan
GAME!: GAME power point
Guidelines this patron set
The Rexburg Animal Shelter would like paper mosaics that are 5 in x 5in big, each with a gold paper background. We would also prefer that students create a border around their mosaic that reflects the animal shelter. Animals can be wildlife, imaginary or pets. It doesn’t matter we LOVE all animals!*
*These are made up requirements. The Rexburg Animal Shelter had nothing to do with this.

And of course the lovely Justinian and his wife
While researching Byzantine art I also came across an artist named Craig Larotonda, His artwork is loosely inspired by Byzantine art. PLEASE NOTE, some works are not appropriate for all audiences. – http://www.revelationart.net/
