A word search puzzle featuring words associated with famous artists. This is the perfect word search to help students learn more about great artists who opened doors for us. Use this sheet as part of your teaching curriculum, a treat for early finishers or just for fun.

I have included 30 words in the list. Words may appear forward, backward, up, down or diagonal. Words may overlap and cross each other. When you have found a word, be sure to circle it and cross it off the list.

Word List: Bernini, Botticelli, Cezanne, Chagall, Da Vinci, De Goya, Donatello, Durer, El Greco, Fish, Hopper, Klee, Klimt, Manet, Matisse, Miro Monet, Munch, Picasso, Pollock, Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Rubens, Salvador, Titian, Van Gogh, Van Dyck, Vermeer, Warhol.

Includes word search solution, as well as, color and b/w versions of the handout.

The product has been updated with TPT's new EASEL feature. It's an ideal way to keep students engaged during distance or virtual learning. You can assign the puzzle to students in a Google classroom and create your own digital overlay if you want! To learn more, CLICK HERE.

Word searches are not only a great way to pass the time, they also make fantastic teaching aids. My puzzles can be used by a variety of people (teachers, managers, religious leaders, professors, and parents just to name a few) to help others instill important facts and lessons.

Not that you really need an excuse to work on a puzzle, but just in case you do, here are a handful of reasons why you should solve word searches:

  • Boosts vocabulary,
  • Improves spelling and logic skills
  • Intellectually engaging
  • Helps you think outside of the box
  • Forces your brain to exercise and workout
  • Assists in problem solving
  • Allows a different form of thinking
  • Easily carried from place to place
  • Develops word recognition
  • Builds stamina
  • Teaches word pattern
  • Rewarding when one is completed
  • And they're TONS OF FUN!!

Need help finding the words. . . .

  1. Ignore the word list and just look for words to "jump out" at you
  2. Look for multiple words at a time instead of just one word
  3. Turn your puzzle upside or sideways
  4. Search sections or chunks at a time versus one letter
  5. Take a short break or look away for a few minutes
