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!

      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?

      • Cheryl Trowbridge March 2, 2014 at 12:28 pm #

        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. :-)
