Tired of explaining which art genres are which?

Post these cards in your classroom and have students refer back to them when learning about new artists and categorizing their artworks by genre! **I keep mine above my projection screen so I can quickly reference them with my students!**

You can also have students categorize their own artwork and include that information in written artist statements!

No longer will you have to explain A MILLION TIMES what a portrait, landscape, non-objective art, etc. is!

In the following pages you will find a set of thirteen 4”x10.5” art genre cards (2 on each 8.5"x11" paper) and one header card. I’ve included: abstract, non-objective, representational, landscape, cityscape, seascape, still life, genre painting, history painting, animal painting, self-portrait, portrait, and typographic (a newer category I’ve added for more modern graphic art based in typography).

If you are using the “Academic Hierarchy of Genres” you will only need the following cards in the following order: 1. History Painting, 2. Portrait, 3. Genre Painting, 4. Landscape, 5. Animal Painting, 6. Still Life Painting.

I would recommend having your printer "scale to fit paper" if you do not have a borderless printer.

This set of cards also matches nicely to my Modern Art Movement Card Set!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact me at and/or leave some feedback! :)
