Play “The Smartest Artist” for a Fun and Meaningful Way to Wrap Up Art Class

It’s difficult to plan out an art class down to the last minute. Things can get chaotic quickly if students are waiting for a teacher to pick them up or for the bell to ring. That’s why it’s so important to have a few activities you can whip out at a moment’s notice. The game, “The Smartest Artist,” outlined in this video, is perfect for times like these!

Split your class into two teams and see what they know! A noisemaker adds to the fun. This game is a great way to review information and quickly assess your students. Bust it out on an evaluation day to wow your administrators!
