As an art teacher, I understand the stuggles of getting students to talk about and discuss artwork. With this art auction game, students play the role of Art Dealer and become immersed in the role as they collaborate with thier peers.
PowerPoint presentation to use with 6 example artworks to use
Instructions for the Art Auction with multiple ways to play
Art Auction Sheet
Small Bid Sheets

This is truly a fun a way to engage students and get them really looking at artwork and thinking about it critically.
This lesson also renforces basic math skills such as adding and subtracting, and can easily be used by regular classroom teachers. It also can be adapted to include other math skills and knowledge. (Can be aligned to the Common Core Standards and the National Visual Arts Standards for Responding and Connecting)
