• Review

These cards are also quite handy for sorting students into groups or to assign different roles (ex. spades clean the tables, hearts clean the floors, clubs clean the paintbrushes, diamonds put away materials).

For the complete look, print all pages double sided. This will ensure that each card has the “Famous Artist” back logo. You can print in black and white, but color is advised. Print on cardstock for a more card-like feel. You can also laminate the cards to protect them from tearing or getting dirty. Print multiple copies of the deck to share with groups of students.

Please note: Some artworks have been cropped to fit the card size. This doesn't bother me, but might bother some, so I want to make sure you know before making a purchase.
