Art History & 30 Famous Artists: Looking for easy arts & crafts activities for elementary kids that focus on art history and famous artists? This is Set 2 of Art History for Elementary Students! There are art projects, activities and lessons focusing on 30 different artists that use a variety of easy-to-find materials. Each artist pack features a read-aloud script for the teacher to help introduce the artist and corresponding art project. This means you will not need a lot of background knowledge of the artist or art curriculum to teach these lessons. Just turn to page one and begin!
There are 30 art lessons in all, and over 150+ step-by-step photos to show student work examples and to provide you with simple instructions.
This big bundle of simple and engaging art lessons complements my best selling Famous Artists In Art History for Elementary 1 collection which focuses on artists such as Van Gogh and DaVinci, as well as cave art, Egyptian art, and more!
What's Included In Art History for Elementary 2?
As a classroom teacher of over 20 years, I have designed these lessons to be successful with regards to time constraints, budget constraints, and with lots of literacy content to integrate literacy and art.
You will find:
- teacher read-aloud scripts so you do NOT need any background in art history - just turn to page one and start reading - no prep!
- minimal supply lists for the very few supplies needed with a school's limited budget in mind. We can still create spectacular art with very few supplies!
- Reflect and Review pages to add literacy components when thinking about the art and artist's ideas
- Student examples of finished art (photos)
- 3 different art projects for EACH of the ten artists (30 lessons!)
- Step by step instructions with over 150 photos
- coloring pages of famous art work for early finishers
- mini-books with fill in the blank vocabulary and geography tasks
- word searches for early finishers with relevant vocabulary
- directed drawing pages relating to each of the famous art work
- suggested search terms so you can provide visual examples of famous work to students. Simply do a web search using the key words provided and choose images.
