Sketchbook Prompts inspired by Artists
This resource focuses on the art of eight amazing artists and activities/sketchbook prompts that relate to their work. The group of handouts outlines the work of the following artists:
1. Artist- Jean Michel Basquiat
2. Artist- Picasso- Blue Period
3. Artist- Georgia O' Keefe
4. Artist -Andy Warhol
5. Artist- Romero Britto
6. Artist- Banksy

It also contains a 20 slide powerpoint that includes images of each artist for you to share with your students .
I use this as a sketchbook prompt for a weekly sketchbook assignment that is inspired by an artist.
Artists can be a great jumping off point for art making and inspiration!!!
They provide an art journal activity that utilizes some aspects of each work. The activity allows students to demonstrate their understanding of the work and how students can use it as inspiration in their own work.
