Fun with Art Movements introduces Impressionism, Expressionism and Cubism to young children with three easy, colorful art lessons. Inspired by Van Gogh, Monet and Picasso (you can’t get any better with these three!) this 23-page booklet shows how to introduce these art movements in a fun, exciting way through coloring pages/drawing guides, full-color tutorials and special techniques.

Inspired by Van Gogh’s Cypresses in Wheat Fields, Monets’ Tulip Fields in Holland and Picasso’s many cubist works, children will learn concepts such as abstraction, horizon line, landscape perspective, color value, patterns and lines and much more.


This 23-page booklet features three complete lessons and is perfect for ages 5-9. The booklet includes:

  • 23 pages of photo-tutorials and teacher tips
  • An introduction to 3 art movements
  • How to draw a cubist bird handout
  • 3 coloring pages: Picasso’s Three Musicians, Van Gogh’s Cypresses in Wheat Fields, Monet’s Tulip Fields in Holland
  • Student galleries
  • Art Supply lists
  • Student Objectives

    Hip, hip, hooray! I love it! We teach all 3 of these artists as part of our 2nd grade emphasis on art, so this will be a perfect complement to the resources we’ve already gathered. Thank you for your work and inspiration!

  2. Looks like a fantastic resource, Patty!

    Hi! Love your site, and I have to confess, I’m the homeschool mom who can barely draw a stick figure. And now I’m considering teaching Art at our co-op this next year. (Don’t worry, I’ll have a helper who can actually draw. Teaching is my passion.) I’m just wondering how long each lesson usually takes. We have 50 min classes. Just need to know for planning purposes. Thanks for any thoughts you have.

  7. I am going to buy 5 packs for my students in the USA – I teach them online as I am in RSA. Is there a chance that I can get a pack (or teachers instructions) so I can brief each child according to the packs they have in front of them?
    Thanx and God Bless
