PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is a hit in my high school art classes. In this art appreciation activity, students pair up and play the roles of artist and curator. The curator is given a picture of a famous piece of artwork and must describe it to the artist. The artist, who does not get to look at the artwork, must draw the famous artwork simply be listening to the curator's description. I often offer a small prize for the pair who does the best job (their artwork looks most like the famous piece of artwork they were given).

I have provided 12 images to go with this activity but, of course, feel free to use your own! I like to use pictures from art magazines, calendars and textbooks as well as online images. Also included are 2 sample artwork descriptions that I always start my classes off with at the beginning of this activity.

This activity really helps students improve and exercise their communication, art criticism, and creation skills.
