Modern Art Games Bundle
Want to get your students excited about learning art? Try implementing one of these modern art games into your next art lesson! Elementary and middle school artists will have fun re-creating one of these nine modern art artists while playing an engaging roll and draw game. Substitute teachers will love the low-prep, fuss-free art projects that are easy to implement.
Are you putting together art centers in your room and looking for some self-guided instructional materials? This modern art games bundle will be a helpful addition to your choice-based arts program. Simply print out the materials and arrange in labeled folders for easy student access.
The art lessons included use a range of materials including oil pastels, watercolors, construction paper, colored pencils, tempera paints, and acrylic paints. They’re designed for students from 1st grade through 8th grade.
I’ve included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a “you pick” board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I’ve added digital spinner wheels!
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give your students dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. If you have access to a smartboard or projector, use the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. It will guide the students during each part of the art project.
Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
If you are substituting or need a fast finisher activity, use the included coloring page.
