Artist Inspired Art Projects for Kids

art docent ideas

Art history is alive and well we just need to share it with your children, pick an artist, make a project and have fun with art history! Other than my family one of my great loves is art history and from birth I have shared art with my kids through books, museum visits and projects like these. Each project is listed under the artist who inspired it , click through the artists name to see the original tutorial and great books to go along with these projects. These are great art docent projects for kindergarten and first grade too.

    Thank you so much for posting these ideas. I recently discovered some great boards books about great artists by Julie Appel and Amy Guglielmo that have inspired us to do our own creations and learn about famous artists at the same time. Here’s my post about it . I love you ideas!
