I have created a ‘blank canvas’ type lapbook as each minibook is blank and the thumbnails are separate. This means you can use the download as it is and cover every artist, or you could use the minibook templates and use them to feature several works of 1 artist. There is an organized lapbook planner with website links as well as a page of extra application ideas.
Here are some examples, but you can view all the lapbook and other Famous Artist downloads on the free Famous Artist Page
Famous Impressionist Artists featured are:
Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Mary Cassatt, Paul Signac, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Bertha Morisot
For a lapbook or notebook & minibook combination, this versatile 18 page pdf. package includes thumbnails of masterpieces, suggested activities, blank minibook templates and an organized lapbook planner for any option using minibooks. This download will offer enough material for dedicated study of each artist and their works.

Here are 4 different one-page minibook blank templates for you:
The hotdog one-page minibook creates an 8 page minibook. All 8 pages are on the one page, which is excellent for printing and photocopying. It is easy to cut the centre fold – just fold the page in half across the width and cut through the double paper on the dotted line. Now open the page and re-fold the page in half lengthwise (which is why it is called a hot dog fold). Press the opening apart to form a diamond. Now flatten all the pages to form the book. Although this seems tricky, my kids use this often and so they do it in a snap! (Look at the photos in my letterboxing post.)
The long cut minibook is the easiest minibook to cut and assemble and creates a 10 page portrait (tall) style minibook. Page 1 and page 10 are on the reverse of the page. If you are printing or photocopying this minibook with pictures or text, you will have to print these pages separately, then cut and paste pages 1 & 10 to the front and pack pages of this minibook.
The T-cut minibook is simple and easy to create. It also forms a 10 page portrait (tall) style minibook. Page 1 and page 10 are on the reverse of the page. If you are printing or photocopying this minibook with pictures or text, you will have to print these pages separately, then cut and paste pages 1 & 10 to the front and pack pages of this minibook.
The landscape minibook is the most unusual minibook, yet it is simple to make. It forms a 10 page landscape(wide) style minibook. Page 1 and page 10 are on the reverse of the page. If you are printing or photocopying this minibook with pictures or text, you will have to print these pages separately, then cut and paste page 1 & 10 to the front and pack pages of this minibook
