Use famous works of art to inspire your students to write and illustrate their own stories as a whole class activity or as a center. Included in this free download are three documents that you can reproduce for your students in easy to read, child friendly vocabulary. Students will be asked to describe a painting by Pablo Picasso. Students will then fill in three circles of information that will serve as writing prompts to help gather ideas for the story. The last page is where the children will write their story and give it a title. There is also a space at the bottom of the page for their illustration. Great Mother's Day gift idea! Writing project designed by art teacher Cheryl Suitor.
