I have been dreaming about how I will be setting up my art room next year, as we will be having two art rooms and I will have a lot more space! The art discussion cards that I created have been popular and I thought that these questions would make an intriguing bulletin board.
I designed 33 colorful signs with interesting art discussion prompts that can be used in classroom critiques or art history discussions. There are 4 additional “title” signs that say “Art Talk”, “Let’s Talk About Art”, etc. Each of the signs is sized at 8.5″ x 11″ and has one prompt or question for discussion about art.
Questions such as
“What sounds would you hear if you were in this picture?” and
“What do you think the artist was trying to say?” will have students analyzing, wondering and discussing artwork. They are also perfect to use for writing activities.
(Artwork not included! Choose your own to adapt for any lesson.)
This packet contains 37 pages:
pages 1-4 = Title Cards for your bulletin board in different fonts
pages 5-37 = Discussion Questions for the bulletin board.
Or, make your own! Just get out some painted papers and write some thoughtful art discussion questions on the signs. Place them on a bulletin board next to famous artworks that you are studying and TALK ABOUT ART!
I’m planning on putting some of these on a bulletin board in my art room and some in the hallway where kids line up and wait outside for classes to start during break. Hopefully, as the kids look at the bulletin board they will be prompted to think about the artwork in new ways.
