New! Artist Birthdays Calendar

Famous Artist Birthday CakeKids love to celebrate birthdays, so what better time to introduce a new artist than on that artist’s birthday? I’ve created a new page on my site to help you plan your artist birthday celebrations! Just click on the “Artist Birthdays” link on my menu bar for a list of birthdays by month, complete with links to lesson plans and wikipedia pages for more helpful info.

Any artist birthdays you’d like me to add? Leave a comment below!

    What a terrific Artist Birthday page. This took you a tremendous amount of time to compile, I am certain. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

      Thanks for your suggestion, Christy. Giotto is one of those artists whose exact date of birth is unknown. I’m trying to decide how to handle those. Maybe a listing at the top for artists with unknown birth dates? What do you think?

        I decided to add the artists whose exact dates of birth are unknown at the end of the list, bottom of the page.

    Kids love to celebrate birthdays… good method to introduce one artist during their birthdays. Its like two in one method.. learning while doing the art. :-)
