Dear Humanities Students,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. We reviewed the three different forms of Greek architecture and the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic forms of art concerning Greek sculpture.

2. Two vocabulary words were introduced to you Polytheism and Paganism. Please visit with someone in class, regarding the definitions for both.

1 Start reviewing for your "quest" covering the introductory information concerning Greece. The "quest" will take place on MONDAY!
2. Please revise your "Artist's Intent" paper. The revision is due on Thursday!

Guys, you SHOULD NOT use your notes for this. Clearly we have an integrity issue here, as I am not sitting next to you at the moment. Use the practice quiz as a pre-test! Cut and paste the following questions into a Word document, and then respond to them from there. Good Luck!
