13+ Famous Artists Inspired Art Projects for Kids!

Famous artist-inspired art projects are one of my favorite ways to teach and learn art techniques and art history!

These art projects are even more exciting because they can be done with preschoolers and elementary-aged kids.  I even want to do them all!

They would make an awesome unit or even an Art Camp during the summer or after school!

Anyway, here are...

I am sharing this collection as part of the Poppins Book Nook!  Every month a group of bloggers shares activities and books related to a common theme.  This month, I'm sharing the Usborne Book of Famous Artists (affiliate link):

This book is packed with fun facts about famous artists!  Read about an artist, and then do one of the art projects I shared!
