AAAApplicatipplicatipplicatipplications ons ons ons ooooffff tttthhhheeeesssseeee mmmmiiiinnnniiiibbbbooooooookkkk ppppaaaaggggeeeessss:: I have created a simple lapbook base from which you may launch in any direction! You may want to use each minibook or its suggested activity or create this lapbook in your own way.

o You can use these pages as they are. Cut and paste the name of the artist on the front of each minibook.

o All the minibooks have been left blank so that you may pick and choose the style you need or prefer.

o Let your child write Charlotte Mason-type narrations (detailed and accurate recall) of the art work inside the minibooks for art appreciation lessons.

o You could cover just 1 artist and use the collection of minibooks to do several minibooks on his different works.

o Collect all minibooks and assemble a lapbook on the entire topic or featuring 1 artist. Let your child assemble the lapbook when they complete the whole unit.

o Include Famous Artist Biography pages and other notebook pages for each artist. (available fromhttp://practicalpages.wordpress.com/free-pages/free-biography-notebook-pages/ )

o Enlarge the thumbnail pictures or find large reprints/ coffee table books/ calendar prints or library books of the pictures to study in greater detail.

o Although this lapbook is intended for middle school students, you could simplify the suggested activity for younger children or provide additional, challenging activities for older students.

o Add additional research questions: 1. When was the work completed? 2. Where is it exhibited now? 3. How much was the painting/ sculpture sold for? 4. Make a timeline of these artists.

Some final comments: I was sensitive about revealing nudity, and there are several biographical details that were not mentioned due to their offensive nature. I acknowledge that this is not a comprehensive list of artists; however they do represent the several different styles, mediums and eras in art. Enjoy Art!
