In this series, students will study a variety of famous artists by producing artwork in the style of the artist. For example, students may produce a simulation of Van Gogh’s Starry Night or Hokusai’s block print of The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Students will also experience connections with the artist’s historical background, biography, culture, and social environment. This program can be expanded to cover as many workshops as desired; each encounter will cover one famous artist and additional artists can be added as needed. This program is designed to connect to Social Studies curriculum standards through the exploration of the life and times of famous artists.
