Insects in Art

Institution ArtsConnectEd

Kids often think of bugs as creepy and crawly but today we are going to discover how insects can be art.  We will learn about the many different ways insects are used in art and see the different approaches artist use to depict them.  

This set was designed for students K-3rd grade to accompany a unit study on insects. Following this slide presentation students will spend time observing insects and making sketches.  These sketches will then be used for an end of the unit project where students create their own insects.

All information with regards to Insects in Art was obtained from the Minneapolis Institue of Arts 5 Facts about Insects in Art, March 2006
