Gender and Creativity in the Renaissance

Week 1 Discussion QuestionThe Renaissance: Were there actually no women artists/writers/craftspeople, or is it that our lack of interest in them today that has allowed them to fade from our awareness? Were women artists not valued because they worked in mediums at their disposal – cloth, fabric, food, et cetera – as opposed to ‘real art forms’ – painting, sculpture, literature, precious metals, et cetera? Or are we today still critical of women in art, viewing the mediums that women could use as being ‘inferior’? Is the issue of lack of respect for women as artists today what keeps us ignorant of the accomplishments of women in the past?Be sure to support your ideas with examples from the required readings and videos for the week. As always, citation is mandatory. Please review APA style.In your first response, embed a multimedia piece, such as a short clip of a video, a link to an audio, or an image that supports or enhances the textual evidence in your response. Remember the multimedia enhances your discussion but does not replace it. Although you may embed additional multimedia in your responses to your classmates, it is only required in the initial response. Attend discussion, responding to your classmates on at least three separate days (in addition to the initial post) by Day 7 to keep the dialogue moving. There is no required word count for individual posts as long as all your posts together total 500 words.https://fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=100753&xtid=86588
