** This file has been updated to include a PowerPoint file as well. So, now you can project your prompts directly on a large screen for students to use as warm-ups or bell ringers! **

This is a bundle of all three of my Art History Sketchbook Prompt sets. Each set has 16 art history prompts for a total of 48 prompts. Buy them as a bundle to save money.

These art history cards feature a selection of inspiring famous artworks with a prompt that can be used to spark drawing and writing.

Print off the cards on cardstock, cut in half and laminate to protect them. You can print off as many copies as you would like. You are welcome to share them with other teachers in your school or district.

Students can use these cards

• in art journals or sketchbooks

• at an art center

• as an enrichment activity

• as an activity with a substitute teacher

• to spark an idea for a larger artwork

• in combination with a creative writing activity (have the kids write a story, poem

or statement about their response to the featured artwork)
