This thesis presents a suggestion for a high school students' project course in Visual arts (art history) pertaining to the topic the historical and artistic heritage of the Renaissance period in Dubrovnik. The thesis elaborates three phases: classroom study and independent students' work, a field trip and the presentation and evaluation of the project. The first phase is comprised of autonomous student research, continual individual and group tasks and classroom study of the following subjects: Historical background and geographical position, Dubrovnik as a fortified city, The Ducal palace and Divona, Residential city palaces and summerhouses (villas), Sacral architecture in Dubrovnik, Renaissance sculpture in Dubrovnik and Renaissance painting in Dubrovnik. The aim of the first phase is to thoroughly prepare students for the second phase, i.e. their field study. Through exercises, tasks, seminars, presentations and lectures students will get ready to apply their classroom knowledge to the immediate environment of the historical and artistic heritage on sites in Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik area. Students will spend a total of three days in the field, visiting five areas on which the cultural sites of the project are located: within the city walls of Dubrovnik, in Mali Ston and Ston, in Lapad, in Rijeka dubrovačka and Trsteno. The first day of their trip is reserved for a short visit to Mali Ston and Ston and is concluded in Dubrovnik, while the second day is devoted to further exploration of Dubrovnik. A visit to the summerhouses in Rijeka dubrovačka and Lapad is scheduled for the last day which will be concluded in Trsteno with a visit to the arboretum. A panel will be held after the field trip which will be an opportunity for the students to share their experiences of the project with other students in the school. The panel will be accompanied by an exhibition of sketches and photographs that the students took while on their field trip. The project offers students a dynamic and interactive way of getting to know the extensive and diverse cultural heritage of the Renaissance period in Dubrovnik through all spheres of visual arts and further deepens their knowledge about a subject that is poorly represented in their regular school curriculum.
