This might sound crazy, but there are art history writing assignments that kids will actually have fun doing! This video highlights one of my favorites called “Blind Date.” It can be used with any two portraits and can serve as a great introduction to an artist, to portraiture, or even just to writing about art. No, we don’t go over the elements and principles of art and we don’t describe/analyze/interpret/judge, but we do something even better: we think critically and creatively, and have fun while we do it. Check it out.
