This is a set of 240 (yes, 240!) Art Task cards. The cards contain a simple prompt that can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Encourage students to put their own spin on the prompt and see where it takes them. Be flexible and encourage creativity. There are 30 pdf pages with 8 cards on each page for a total of 240.
Use them as an art warm-up, create posters with options for the students to pick from, use them with a substitute teacher, pass out the cards and have the kids pick from them or drop them in a "drawing jar" for the students to take when they need an idea. The cards are colorful and attractive. I recommend laminating these or printing on thick cardstock.
Some sample prompts include:
- Illustrate a quote.
- A corner store
- Solving a mystery
- Draw a picture that shows overlapping.
- Draw confusion.
- A place you have visited
- A flag for an imaginary country
- Draw six shapes.
- A secret fort
- Ant colony
- I feel...
- Create a collage using only one color.
- In the ocean
- Things that start with the letter... (26 of these cards are the letters of the alphabet)
- Design your own money.
And much more!!
So as you can see, the prompts can be used to create a plethora of exciting artworks. You could also choose two cards and combine them.. such as Ghosts in an Ant Colony! That would be a crazy picture :)
