Famous Artists Lapbook ~ loads of minibooks!

This Famous Artist Lapbook features ~

Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo di Lodovico, Raffael Sanzio da Urbino, Sandro Botticelli, Anthony van Dyck, Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Francisco Goya, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, Peter Paul Rubens, Salvador Dali, Henry Moore and Paul Jackson Pollock

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 web site links as well as a page of extra application ideas.

Here some samples of the 20 pages:

I have created a simple lapbook base from which you may launch in any direction!  You may want to use each minibook or its suggested activity or create this lapbook in your own way.

  • You can use these pages as they are.  Cut and paste the name of the artist on the front of each minibook.
  • All the minibooks have been left blank so that you may pick and choose the style you need or prefer.
  • Let your child write Charlotte Mason-type narrations (detailed and accurate recall) of the art work inside the minibooks for art appreciation lessons.
  • You could cover just 1 artist and use the collection of minibooks to do several minibooks on his different works.
  • Collect all minibooks and assemble a lapbook on the entire topic or featuring 1 artist.  Let your child assemble the lapbook when they complete the whole unit.

  8. I LOVE your works! I think they’re awesome! I was wondering if when you create your materials if you’ve ever thought of a only picture page. A page/download that has all the photos/pictures you’ve used in that theme/topic. I would find it VERY useful & I would use it to make 3part cards for the kids. 🙂

    Again, thank you! I truly appreciate the dls!
