This bundle contains 6 PDF files containing 199 modern artist
information cards (including a few bonus contemporary artists). Each card has the artist’s name, portrait, years lived, associated art movement(s), and a sample of their artwork in the background.
These cards can be used in a number of different ways.
1. You can post a card on the board when you're doing a lesson based around that particular artist.
2. You can create an artist "Word Wall."
3. You can organize the cards by movement and post them on your bulletin board.
4. You can use them to create an "Artist of the Week" board.
5. You can print multiple copies to a page and have your students glue them in their sketchbooks.
6. You can create an artist timeline.
7. You can have students select one of the artists to do a project/report on.

If you are printing only a few select artists, please review the included README document which contains the “Artists in Each PDF” list. You can see which PDF the artist or art movements you are looking for are in. Artists are listed in the order they appear in the PDF.
I recommend printing on cardstock paper or laminate the cards to increase longevity.
**When printing these cards, make sure that you set your printer to “Scale to Fit.”
If the artist you are looking for does not appear in this bundle (but their associated art movement is), please feel free to reach out to me so I can see about adding it to the set.
