MuseumKid- Free Coloring Pages!

Free Coloring Pages!

I'm at the age…the age when all my friends are having children! Although I don't have any kids myself, I would like them one day and as soon as I do I am getting them involved with art. I know I will probably bore them with constant museum visits when they would rather run around at the park or watch TV, but I really believe that getting children involved with art and culture education is important.

It is quite possible that I don't have kids yet because I am too busy making coloring pages…

I personally made these coloring pages with Photoshop, inspired by famous art pieces, for you to print out for free, have your kids color them, teach them about art and culture, and then stick on your fridge or give them to relatives or whatever else you would like to do with them!

Instructions- It's very easy!

1.Click on the picture
2.Open or save the downloaded file
3.Print

*Designed to fit 8.5" x 11" sheets of paper.
*These are MS Word Documents.

Print as many as you like! They're free!

    What wonderful coloring pages! Love them!!

    I write activity guides for kids to use while exploring countries like France and Spain and for world class museums like the Prado in Madrid and the Louvre in Paris. These activity guides are $3 and you download them from your own computer.

    I just love the idea of having kids color photos to learn about specific artist. I’m going to link to this in one of my posts! Would love a shout out from you!

    Thanks for sharing.

    We are studying Magritte in my classroom. Any chance of a Magritte coloring page?

      Hi Nan- thats a great idea! The MoMA in NYC just did a Magritte exhibit and it was very inspiring. As soon as I get break from working way too much I work on some new coloring pages and include a Magritte!

    Thanks so much for these wonderful coloring pages. I am an Elementary School Art Teacher and my students just finished learning all about Andy Warhol. As an extension of learning about Warhol, I am going to have my older students draw and design their own “Campbell’s Soup Can” and for my younger students I am going to have them draw a design onto your “Campbell’s Soup Can” coloring page and then have them color it. Thanks so much for sharing and enriching the lives of the students I teach. Great Blog!

    Thanks so much! I am teaching my 8 year old son about art and art history in homeschool this year. This is so very helpful!

    These are way cool! I was able to find the originals of all but the Picasso picture. Is that one also based on one of his pieces? If so, what is the name of that one? Thanks so much for sharing!

      Hi Maci- I’m really glad you appreciate them. They took a long time to “draw” in photoshop. The Picasso I did from his piece “Femme assise devant la fenêtre” or “Women Seated Before the Window”. Thanks for your comment!

      Your comment made my week! I’m so glad to hear young students are finding these coloring pages useful. I haven’t had much feedback about them, so your comment is much appreciated! I will be working on some more in the future.

    These are great! I'm going to pass them on to my friends with kids. I also know someone who does home-schooling that these would be prefect for.
