This is a 1 day art lesson showing examples of a variety of famous artist's signatures, along with an example of one of their paintings.
The slideshow starts with the learning target that students will be inspired by famous artist's signatures to create a creative signature of their own. The slideshow ends with a prompt to create their own creative signatures.
I did this as a 1 day lesson with my middle and high school art classes, telling students just a bit about the artist or the art style of each one. Students were very engaged and interested, and had a blast being creative with a signature of their own. It was a great 1 day lesson (45 min - 1 hour) !
