The Getting to Know You sheets are great to use at the beginning of the school year or semester. They are geared for the art classroom. There are a total of 4 different sheets which can be used for different classes. Print on to large paper for posters that the kids can write, draw and color on. I encourage students to add color and designs to the background.
The prompts are fairly open-ended and can be interpreted in different ways. I would give different sheets to different classes or let them pick which one they want to do.
This activity can be used as quick assessment of where your students are at with their fine motor, drawing, creativity and conceptual skills.
Some of the prompts include personal things such as:
"My favorite things to draw..."
"A self-portrait of the artist"
"I can draw a picture of where I live"
and then more general art-specific prompts such as:
"I can draw a picture using only geometric shapes."
"I can draw a picture using rainbow colors."
