Talking About Art with the Artists

Talking with the Best of Em'

I created this deck of 30 cards with artist quotes and images.

Students look at the cards and choose one that they connect to based on the image. 
Then they read the quote and decide to agree or agree to disagree. 
Students then have time to mingle in the classroom, read, and discuss the art and artist quotes. 
The class discussion concludes with students developing their own ideas about what art is, what it means to make art, or their feelings about art. Students will write their own artist quote and design an Artist Trading Card to go with it. 

I'll let you all know how it goes on Tuesday. This is our first class activity in 6th grade art. 

I have used artist quotes in the past, as an end of art discussion, but i am really excited to try this out.
