Lesson plans are broken down by grade level, with 10 plans for each level and each plan includes the following sections:
  • About the Artist brief biography of the artist
  • About the Art and overview of artwork
  • Directed Observation instructions for lesson plan implementation
  • Things to Do projects and additional activities related to the artist or artwork
  • Discipline-Based Art Education art concepts, elements of art, principles of design, composition, style, related literature and more
There are 80 different artists featured and, although they are gradeleveled, it appears that you could adjust the plans to fit any grade level.

This is a fabulous must-see resource for your art studies.
