This project aligns with visual art, visual literacy, informational texts, biography research, nonfiction, and art history.
Please note:Artists often lead hard and troubled lives. I have given teachers the ability to edit this lesson as necessary, but please research the artist and make sure you are ok with students learning sometimes unfortunate events before purchasing. Because although I have done my best to choose a video and websites that are safe for children, I don't control history and can't change or soften it for you.
I love seeing student artwork! Share yours with me!
