Artists of Canada Inspired Art Projects
eleven different art projects (each one can usually be completed within a few hours from start to the end of clean-up).
- complete lesson plans with step-by-step instructions with modifications to differentiate for your students (or your available supplies).
- projects that use art materials found in most classrooms like Tempera paint, watercolour paint, black markers, construction paper, string, tin foil, watercolour paper, cardstock, pencil crayons and paintbrushes.
- photographs of student examples.
reflection pages for students in English and French.
instructions to minimize prep work and clean up.
art projects designed for the "not-an-art-teacher" generalist (meaning they don't require you to have a lot of specialized art skills).
- inspired works based on the artwork of artists chosen from all over Canada. The artists are from a variety of ethnic backgrounds including Indigenous People, Chinese, Spanish, Filipino and Japanese which adds to the variety of mediums and styles. While the projects are inspired by different artists, this resource does not specifically share information about the different artists or their pieces of art.
Ninja Note: This file is a PDF and requires printing for students to use the student pages. Teachers are not required to print the plans or photographs to use them. Instead, they can be displayed on a projector to be shared with students.
