Artist Research Poster: EASY Art 1 Art History Lesson

Who Wants to Grade a Research Paper??? NOT ME! That’s Why I Love this Artist Research Poster Lesson!

In Art 1, I don’t like to do a lengthy research project.  However, I do like to incorporate some art history and a little bit of research without having to do a lot of writing (and, let’s face it, grading).  So, I absolutely LOVE this Artist Research Poster idea that I found and adapted from Ms. Swanson at Art Mash.  I also loved the idea of incorporating a little bit of graphic design, too. 

To help them with this project, I have created a helpful TPT resource that walks them through the process. On Teachers Pay Teachers it also includes a list of 50+ artists that I use to assign them.  They range from Albrecht Durer to Frank Lloyd Wright to Banksy.

This is a great lesson to leave for a substitute, too. You can assign the Artist Research Packet (I recommend going over it the day before you plan to be gone with students just for clarity, but it’s not necessary!) on the day you will be absent. Students can complete the worksheet with the substitute teacher.

Leave them some white drawing paper to begin the final artwork if they happen to get that far. From my experience, my high school Art 1 students take about 1 90 minute block to complete the worksheet packet. Then it takes another two blocks to finish the poster depending on how much they are engaged and focused.

I really hope you find this Artist Research Poster idea helpful! Let me know if you do these or what other type of research do you do with your students?
