This collaborative poster reads ‘Every Artist Was Once an Amateur’.  It’s a simple way to introduce group work to your curriculum where each student colours a piece(s) of the picture which combines to create a large artwork.  The lesson plan suggests you use coloured pencils, felt tips or watercolour.  This resource comes in both A4 pieces and letter-size pieces.

This download includes:

  • An 8-page A4 PDF and an 9-page letter-size PDF each of which piece together to create the image above.
  • A lesson plan that includes helpful tips and an optional idea for including colour theory in the lesson.
  • A good example of the poster.

If you like this collaborative poster, you’ll find more collaborative artworks on The Arty Teacher website that help develop teamwork skills.

Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
