August is American Artist Appreciation Month

August is American Artist Appreciation Month. You can have children observe, study and enjoy pictures of American Artists. You can have them replicate the art or simply have them create art inspired by what they see from the artist (great for younger students). The other great idea bout this theme is that children in our country ARE American artists! They may not be recognized or famous, but all children are great artists and should be celebrated! If you have a child that would like to be celebrated for his/her art, please send a photo and name to me at for a feature mention!

You can also link up your American and Student art related posts in the linky below! I would love for you to share other artists that I may not have mentioned ( you can put them in the comments below). Here are a list of a few American Artists that make  great learning opportunities for children in the area of art.
  • Jackson Pollock
  • Faith Ringgold
  • Andy Warhol
  • Grandma Moses
  • Georgia O'Keeffe
  • Ansel Adams
