My Students

We are all artists. Each month, we learn about a famous artist and produce art in that signature style. My students look forward to each Artist of the Month. I spend a lot of time and money to find teaching resources that are age-appropriate.

Books bring artists to life as students learn more about how each artist grew up and see what each artist is famous for.

The Internet is a great resource as well, but nothing compares to quality literature. Help me build my artist library so I can continue to inspire my young artists.

My Project

By adding to my collection of books about artists, my students will have access to primary sources to support their understanding of these amazing artists. The stories about their lives will paint a picture for my students to see what influenced their styles. The photos of their artwork will inspire us to create art in the style of these artists.

One day, when my students see an actual painting in a museum from one of the featured artists, they will gasp and say, "I know that one!" Every student is an artist.

With art, we are allowed to express ourselves creatively.
