Product Description
Make your room beautiful, inspirational and educational with 18 art quotes and writing activity. Students will find meaning in the quotes through a writing and sharing activity where each student chooses a meaningful quote and shares who wrote it, what makes this an important person, what the quote means and why it is meaningful to them. You will feel good knowing that you didn’t just decorate the room, you are providing inspiration to your students (and yourself)!

Each quote is shown in both black text on a white background, and white text on a black background (the reverse image). Displaying alternating background colors has a stunning effect. You will get both styles of each quote (a total of 36 images) so that you can pick and choose the style and quotes that you want to display. The quotes do NOT have the Expressive Monkey logo on them.

The quotes are all about art. Some are from artists and others from writers. Use these quotes to inspire young artists, writers, and lyricists.

18 Art Quote with black text on white (300 dpi png files)
18 Art Quotes (same quotes) with white text on black (300 dpi png files)
1-page writing & sharing activity sheet (PDF)
