2º BRITISH: Infographic - Artists from the Renaissance

Your new task is about creating an infogrpahic but, first of all, what is an infographic?

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.

There are a wide variety of tools available that allow you to create your own infographic. These free infographic creator tools will allow you to generate an infographic very quickly, without the need for a professional designer, and often in very high quality formats but if you prefer something more familiar to you for starting, you can download this archive with free power point templates.

However, having the tools to make your own infographic is only one piece of the puzzle. Besides being visually attractive, your infographic should be informative and complete from an educational point of view. So, what do you have to do?

Each team will create an infographic about one Renaissance artist. You should offer a good visual explanation about his/her biography (try to add a portrait!) and 2 or 3 masterpieces with an explanation (the title, the “mecenas” or art collector, what does it mean, what is it important for...).

When finish, sent the work as an attached file to You can be also asked to give an oral explanation at class (about 4-6 minutes) and remember that ALL the members of the team has to talk. But don’t panic: here are some tips for public speaking.
