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.

Hi, I was wondering if it offers an overview of art movements, definitions, styles, etc? I know nothing about art and would be learning alongside my kids, so something that teaches us the basics would be really helpful. If it doesn’t, is there anything that you would recommend?
Hi, There is information on all of these things in the teacher’s manual. And of course anything you don’t find you can always search online for as well, I include my kids in this process, it is a great skill to teach to your kids!
So the books shown under resources needed, where would we find those? Amazon or are they available here on your website or where?
Also, if they’re not available to buy on your website it would be nice if the titles were listed so we can do the research to find out costs before we buy this pack here.
Hi, we used the Mike Venezia books, they’re great for younger readers. You can get them here: https://amzn.to/3zzibTQ or at your local library too!
