Our Famous Artists lesson plan stimulates creativity and critical thinking as students practice observing the details and style of artwork from several famous artists, including O’Keeffe and Picasso. During this lesson, students are asked to tap into their own creative expression with activities to recreate or use as inspiration the work of a famous artist in their own unique interpretation. Students are also asked to identify works of art by their artist, the name of the piece, and the style of art.
At the end of the lesson, students will have learned about important artists and styles of art.
