Getting to Know You Activity: Art History Folded Petals

Art History Folded Petal– Getting to Know You Activity


This is a fun and educational “Getting to Know You” activity I did with some classes last year.  I have these art history folded petal templates in my shop.

On one side are artworks from art history with a little prompt.  For example, Dog Lying in the Snow, by Franz Marc.  The prompt is “Draw a favorite animal.  On the reverse side of the folded petals, the students draw and design their response.  It allows them some exposure to some fun artworks from famous artists and it also allows you to get to know your students and their interests.
