AP Art History Teacher Resources

This was a fun activity that was suggested to me to help my students work on FORM and describing imagery in detail! Have students pair up and stand back to back or one student facing the image and the other facing away with a pencil and paper.

The student facing the board must describe the image so that the student can draw it accurately. Very tricky, but it was a lot of fun! The kids really had to be specific about what they were seeing and those who were drawing had to listen intently and follow directions accurately.


One student got techie on us and used Microsoft paint!

What kinds of activities do you have your students do to focus on form and describing imagery? Share below!
