Art Board Games & Quizzes

By The Arty Teacher - June 14, 2023

Art board games can be a fantastic addition to the art classroom because they offer a unique and engaging way for students to learn and practice various art concepts and techniques.

In an age where students spend far too long staring at screens, it’s a delight to see them engaging with their classmates, building relationships and working as a team.

Below are some fun and highly-rated games from Amazon.

Bob Ross: Art of Chill
Earn “chill points” by painting landscape features like Happy Little Trees and Almighty Mountains using colours and brushes from your hand of cards.

Board games build social skills by encouraging communication, cooperation, turn-taking, and sportsmanship, all of which are essential for healthy social interactions and relationships.

Modern Art Board Game
Your students play the role of rival museums and have to try and buy and resell famous paintings. What's not to love!

Drawing Board Games

Students can become very precious about drawing. The games below take that pressure away and allow students to draw just for fun.

Six Second Scribbles - The Fanatically Fast Drawing Game
Can your students draw 10 things from a given categroy in 60 seconds?
Art Out of the Box
Your students pick a subject and technique from 80 cards and then get drawing!

Art Board Games to Gain Artist Knowledge

I’d be pleased if my students increased their knowledge about artists. With the games below, they can do just that in a fun and friendly way.

Guess the Artist: The Art Quiz Game
Moustache + Lobster + Flying Cat = Which Artist? Will your students be able to identify the famous aritsts from 3 visual clues?

Board games help children retain knowledge by engaging them in fun and interactive experiences that reinforce and contextualize information, while also promoting cognitive and social skills. They won’t even realise they are learning!

The Art Game
This appears to be a 'top trumps' for artists. I'm pleased to say it has equal male and female representation.
