Materials List for Art History Curriculum for Elementary
This curriculum includes a quick supply list, a student supply list, and teacher supply list. The majority of the supplies needed are basic paint and paper, but there are a few weird supplies like fidget spinners, sculpture bases, and so on. I made every attempt to restrict the supply list to use common, inexpensive materials whenever possible.
Image and Resource Links for Art History Curriculum for Elementary
Due to copyright restrictions I cannot include images of the artists’ work, so each lesson includes specific links to image examples and resource options. Each link has a search term included in case the link goes down, with specific artist and artwork names for ease of use.
This curriculum includes many different artists, and relies heavily on contemporary artists to keep the art interesting for the students. They may not care about Seurat’s pointillism work, but a pointillism piece made from bottle caps will certainly catch their attention. The curriculum is designed to keep you from having to search for those interesting artists and save you time and frustration.
