These sketchbook prompts each borrow a bit from a famous artwork.  The rest is up to the imagination of your young artist!

Famous artist inspired sketchbook prompts…

These ten prompts are ready for your students to complete a drawing inspired by an iconic art image. While the prompts print in color, how your students finish these prompts is completely up to them.  A simple pen and ink illustration would be a graphic way to add details.  Markers, paint, pencil- they all work!

The beauty of these printable sketchbook prompts is they can function in different ways depending on your needs!  Need an activity for the last ten minutes of art class while the last few kids finish up? Maybe you’re looking for a fun extension of an artist study? Or maybe you need art activities that students can do at home with very limited supplies?  These artist themed sketchbook prompts will be there!
