Art is ... ABC's of Artists and Art Vocabulary (33 printables) is 4 folders. (One zip file of both jpg and pdf). The emphasis is on the alphabetical letter, the artist whose name corresponds to the letter, and art vocabulary.
The ABC's Letter includes on each page (26 pages):
1. ABC's of Artist by Name
2. One Artist art work in color (about 1/4 page)
3. A space for hand writing the Alphabetical Letter,
Upper and Lower Case
4. ABC's of Art Vocabulary - Students can write brief definitions in the blank space or use it for....open ended
5. A space for Drawing - Open ended blank where students can create what they want (about 1/4 page) Open Ended, is usually a student directed process, where they can draw their feelings, emotions, reactions to the art work in the blanks provided. They can choose to copy the designs, outlines the shapes/forms, or even just draw one aspect. Open ended is not assessed and there is no right or wrong. Just encourage active participation in some form.
*Note, some letters are difficult to find Artists. (Q, X, Z) So a popular art theme was used instead. (Queen, Xray, Zebra)
There is a separate folder of the art vocabulary on 5 pages. The definitions are not given. Finding the definitions would be a good individual/team assignment.
There is a separate folder for 1 page of the list of artists' names.
There is a separate folder for the ABC page template if you would care to create your own example. These are all editable in "Paint."
Total printables are 33 pages in both jpg format and pdf.

This packet could make a great sketchbook, if you give the students one page per week. (26 weeks). Keep them in their portfolio and compile into a sketchbook at the end. Awesome!
Any artwork by famous artists is/was created by them, and used in accordance with Fair Use in Education. I ask that my students look at their art as "inspiration" and do not copy it, rather enhance their appreciation and learning about art. It is shown to illustrate artists by the alphabet and as an example of their art.
There is a similar version for Grades K-3, ESL, which is geared toward learning to write the alphabet, and some words specific to each letter. The vocabulary is general and some art, and the pictures are usually art related.
