THERE ARE 82 SIGNS in this package. This is a colorful, thought-provoking set of signs about what artists do, what artists make, how they impact the world and what behaviors they have.
The grade level I teach is K-6, so these signs are geared for students in this age range. Middle schoolers can learn from them as well. They are clear and easy enough for most young students to understand.
Filled with colorful and important works of art from history and contemporary artists, these signs are perfect to introduce art class and answer the questions: What is art? What do artists do? Who is an artist?
THERE ARE 82 SIGNS! You can choose to hang the signs that you think your students will resonate with and understand. Swap them out throughout the year to keep your students thinking and wondering.
THERE ARE 82 SIGNS! At $8.99, that is less than 11 cents per sign. I try to keep my prices reasonable and affordable for art teachers.
The signs are arranged in one big PDF file, so you could project them through your computer as a slide show.
I've made the following revisions to this product:
I have included in this zipfile the same product, but in PPT format. There are automatic slide transitions, so this can be played as a self-running, looping presentation (like for open houses).
The content covers different art forms artists make. A few examples are:
Artists make masks.
Artists create temporary art.... and much more!
Some of the signs talk about the functions of art. A few examples are:
Artists make art to be worn.
Artists make gifts.
Artists commemorate events and people... and more!
Other signs include statements about the artistic process and artistic behaviors. Some examples are:
Artists study nature and animals.
Artists research and brainstorm ideas.
Artists develop art making skills... and more!
Some have to do with elements and qualities of artworks:
Artists use color to express mood.
Artists play with size and scale.
Artists use natural materials to make art.. etc.
Some of the signs include ways artists get ideas and how they are inspired.. some examples include:
Artists raise questions.
Artists are inspired by the community and neighborhoods.
Artists are inspired by the human body.
Artists make art about their personal lives.
Artists work in a series.
