Inside: A free art worksheet to help students connect with artworks on a deeper level using three writing prompts.
When students are asked to think beyond the surface of an artwork, they learn more about the art and themselves. Reflecting on their thoughts about a work of art–whether it is the work of a professional artist, their classmate, or their own piece–will bring new insights and a deeper appreciation for both the art process and the final product.
Free Art Worksheet Activity
Included in both the FREE art worksheet pack and the Art Appreciation Worksheet Bundle, the Art Reflections worksheet asks students to examine an artwork from three different perspectives. First, they take note of what they see in the artwork. Next, they consider what thoughts come to mind as they look at the art and dig into the narrative and their own emotional response. Finally, they question what more they want to know.
This three part worksheet is an easy, engaging way for students to practice creative and critical thinking in the art classroom.
