World’s Greatest Artists Vol. 2

I’m so excited to release this today! I’ve had so many questions and requests for a second volume to my original World’s Greatest Artist Unit Study that I couldn’t say no! So without further ado, we have the World’s Greatest Artists Vol. 2!

Artists2Binder

 

Introduction:

Come along on our quest to learn about some of the world’s greatest artists!  In this series of artist studies, we will be learning about 7 of the world’s greatest artists. We will immerse ourselves in the work of each artist so we become well familiar with their style, methods, and images. The Unit study includes 8 open and go lessons for each artist.

Much of our time studying will be through open discussion and hands on experimentation. Upon completion of this curriculum you will be able to easily recognize the artwork from each artist studied, learn to look at art critically, as well as have gained an appreciation for art in general. You will also have explored some new techniques, and created several of your own unique masterpieces!

So grab some paint brushes, paints, and get ready to explore, create, and learn!

Who is this for?

I designed the artist units for elementary aged students, typically K-5, but I’ve had several people say that they’ve been used for older students with great success as well.

Scheduling:

I suggest scheduling approximately 4 weeks per artist. Each artist study has 8 lessons, so that averages to 2 lessons per week over the course of 26 weeks. However, the lessons can be easily adapted to fit your schedule as well.

What artists are included in Vol. 2?

Materials needed:

  • Paper
  • Pencils
  • Paint, water color and tempera
  • Paint Brushes
  • Drop Cloth, or something to protect your work area
  • Clay or Play-doh

Resources Suggested: Getting to know the World’s Greatest Artist Series by Mike Venezia:

For several lessons there are hands on activities to help students recognize and appreciate the artwork they are studying. Here is an example of a puzzle Turbo worked on for Georgia O’Keeffe from World’s Greatest Artist Vol. 1.

And here is a close-up of the Artist Flashcards, again one of our artists from Vol. 1.

Lapbook:

As you progress through the curriculum students will create a fun lapbook with puzzles, artists flashcards, reports, and mini-books to help remind them of the artist’s work, how they felt about it, and what they remember most! Here is what the inside of your lapbook will look like once you start filling it up (Pics are from Vol. 1, and yes, Georgia’s name has been fixed)!

    First of all, thank you very much for sharing such great material for studying art with the kids. Unfortunately, I don’t know why I can’t download these units (both vol. 1 and vol. 2). Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  36. Hello! I would like to purchase both volumes. It says here that the first one is free, but when I click on it it doesn’t appear to be free.
