Hi everyone! I’ve been working on a fun unit study for next year! It’s called The World’s Greatest Artists Vol. 1 and I’m excited to share it here with you today!
Come along on our quest to learn about some of the world’s greatest artists! So grab some art supplies and get ready to explore, create, and learn!
In this series of artist studies, we will be learning about 8 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.
Each study includes:
- Lesson plans for each week
- Lap Book printables
- Artist Notebooking page
- Art Puzzles
- Artist Flashcards
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! And at the end you’ll have a wonderful Greatest Artists Lap Book to refer to!
Resources needed for this study include:
I highly recommend the Mike Venezia Books to go along with my curriculum, they are included in the lesson plans. The books are a fun addition and are perfect for younger kids!
If you would like to skip this additional cost, you can often find them at your local library, or you can do internet searches for each piece of art discussed as you go through the curriculum as well.
What Artists are included in Vol 1?
- Pablo Picasso
- Vincent Van Gogh
- Jackson Pollock
- Claude Monet

Thank you soo much for sharing this! I needed somewhere to start, and with very limited funds I just didn’t know what I was going to do. This has helped so much!
I linked to it in my blog as well 🙂
What an amazing unit you’ve put together. I wish that I’d found it sooner. I can’t wait to use this unit with my daughter when she gets a little older.
Thank you so much for not only creating this amazing unit study but sharing it as well. I have been looking for a unit study with this in mind. It’s perfect. Although I may not do the entire study, we will focus on 1-2 artists.
Thanks again for your hard work.
Wow, this is amazing, I’ve been waiting for a site like this to provide the tools to get more involved in my kids education. Thanks so much and stay blessed…

Hello Erica! I’ve been watching your videos on youtube. I’m new at homeschooling 4 children. All different grade levels: 9th, 4th, 1st and prek. I’ve been looking for an art curriculum and I came upon yours. It looks great. My question is would I be able to use it for my 9th grader for high school credit?
The World’s Greatest Artists are really geared more towards elementary students, so it would be great for your 4th, 1st, and prek. However it would be way too easy for a 9th grader, and not for HS credit.
