One of the easy ways to include art appreciation into your life is to combine it with other things you’re already doing. Language arts is a perfect go-together with art, simply because art can inspire so much language!

Caption This: French Writers $5.00
Felix Vallotton was a Swiss-French artist in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Although he was an accomplished painter, what he is best known for is his work with modern woodcut art. When I saw his series of French writer portraits done in woodcut, I knew I had found a delightful treasure that I wanted to share with you. Each face shows so much character and interest, and I could immediately see how this could be a launching point for some really fun creative writing!
It took my teenagers about 3 seconds of looking at this art to start coming up with a steady stream of hilarious comments, quotes, and reactions to the French writers, so I trust your children will also find these a source of entertainment and inspiration! This is my favorite type of writing–where it’s so fun that the kids don’t even think of it as a school chore.
This PDF download includes 20 French writers plus several pages of speech bubbles, thought bubbles, text and tweet graphics, caption frames, and more! This fun and easy Art+Language Arts activity will have your kids cracking up.
