Game Time!

I have been so inspired by the Roll-a-Miro game that another art teacher pinned on Pinterest.

What a fun way to incorporate a little art appreciation into the art room.
My newest version is Roll-a-Picasso.
I have a visual library of cubist portraits painted by Picasso.  Students are able to look at these images and find the 'parts' they see in the game.

We haven't played it yet, can't wait!

A similar game that we have been playing is Create-a-Creature - the kids love the randomness, and I love that the roll of the dice takes a lot of the fear out of getting started.

(It is a great activity for days when there is a substitute teacher in the art room)


  1. A great sub lesson - or for early finishers.
