Product Description
Make your room beautiful, inspirational and educational with 24 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 inside a striking hand-painted watercolor circle as well as on a white background with watercolor letters (the reverse image). Displaying alternating circles quotes with watercolor letter quotes has a stunning effect. You will get both styles of each quote (a total of 48 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.

What you get:
• 24 Art Quote on watercolor circles (250 dpi png files)
• 24 Art Quotes (same quotes) with watercolor lettering (250 dpi png files)
• 1-page writing & sharing activity sheet
• 1 page of instructions
