Resources Famous Artists
Resource Preview You can use artwork by famous artists to help the children practise and develop their drawing and painting skills when modeling techniques and copying styles and themes. The class should spend time investigating and discussing artwork by a particular artist. The children can suggest reasons for the art subject and identify techniques used by the artist to reflect themes and ideas. Allow the class to explore one work of art closely by replicating different parts of a painting or drawing to focus on a specific technique.

The class can then produce their own artwork to match the style and technique of a particular artists. The children should not directly copy the artwork but should try and emulate the styles in their own artwork. For example, the children could use the pointillism technique developed by Seurat to produce a landscape painting of the school building. Similarly, the class could produce paintings of the school at sunset and sunrise following how Turner depicted light in artwork.
