Famous Artists Drawing Prompts: Make Learning About Art Fun and Interactive in Your Homeschool
Do you ever feel like there’s just not enough time to cover everything you want to cover? With our drawing prompts you can combine multiple subjects such as artist study, drawing, and writing. (And it’s easy to throw in a little geography too!)
One of the first subjects to be set aside is art, but we think it’s too valuable to completely ignore! Studying the artists and their works gives us insight into history, culture, and even political movements. Artists often reflect the times and beliefs of where and when they lived.
You can use our Famous Artist Drawing Prompts as a part of a study of artists from around the world, or as a monthly “artist highlight” to supplement your art curriculum or arts and crafts time. Learning about artists also makes a great supplement to world history or geography studies!
Here are a few activities that will make learning about these artists easy!
- Look for a kid’s video about the artist on YouTube
- Go to the library and find a book about him
- Find out where the artist is from and locate that place on a map
- Incorporate the Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists books for kids
- Search for images of the artist’s paintings online
- Go to a museum! (You may not see these artists, but it will greatly enhance your study of art in general. There’s nothing like seeing the real thing!)
