I’m excited to present to you my Art Around the World in 30 Days eBook from the Art Curator for Kids. Every day for the month of November 2014, I posted about amazing artworks that span the globe and span time. There are prehistoric artworks to artworks done in the 21st century. We visited every occupied continent. We learned about architecture, painting, sculpture, masks, installation art, fabric art, and more.
Among these pages, you will find information about the works of art, pictures (when I could–see below for more about that), discussion questions, project and learning activity ideas, and resource lists.
I had a blast putting this together for you, and I am so proud of these 98 pages. 98 PAGES! It’s amazing to see it all together like this, and I hope you find these lessons useful.
About the Photos:
For 8 of the entries, you will find a big question mark over the image with it grayed out. This means I do not have the rights to publish the photo. I included a low quality thumbnail in each case and links to access the pictures larger. Thank you for your understanding.
