Famous Artists

Our Famous Artists lesson plan teaches students about several famous artists in the world and about their artwork. Students learn to identify some of their work and to identify several prominent styles of art.

Our Famous Artists lesson plan stimulates creativity and critical thinking as students practice observing the details and style of artwork from several famous artists, including O’Keeffe and Picasso. During this lesson, students are asked to tap into their own creative expression with activities to recreate or use as inspiration the work of a famous artist in their own unique interpretation. Students are also asked to identify works of art by their artist, the name of the piece, and the style of art.

At the end of the lesson, students will have learned about important artists and styles of art.

    Fantastic Overview of Famous Artists

    We have enjoyed using this item - we home school, and are using this with our 8 and 12 year olds. It is easy to follow use. And gives a nice introduction to the artists included. We highly recommend this resources.

    for everyone

    This lesson was for my second grader, but the whole family learned something from this. We all read about the famous artist and helped her with her activity. After that as a family, we had a contest of painting a famous artist of our choice.
