Painted Paper Art


Vivid, Vibrant Van Gogh: A Fall Themed Bundle introduces children to the wonderful world of Van Gogh. Using his beautiful paintings as inspiration to understand the artist's painting style, children create their own paintings inspired by Van Gogh’s famous artwork. These lessons are perfect examples of incorporating art history with basic art supplies to create the most beautiful works of art that every student will be proud of.

I have found over the past 20 plus years that creating thematic units from K-6 is more manageable for the classroom setting. You can gather inspirational pieces and books that can be used among grade levels which saves you time and preparation.

This bundle contains lessons for every grade level from K-6th.

All of the lessons can be completed in only two 50-minute classes.

The 96-page bundle includes: 7 Fun, Fall inspired Lesson Plans

Wheatfield with Crows (grades K – 1)

Into the Woods with Van Gogh (grades 2 – 3)

Farmhouses Among Trees (grades 3 – 4)

Mulberry Tree (grades 3 – 4)

I like to print out my lesson plans and store them with my Art Teacher planner. If you are concerned about printing you may want to print just the coloring sheets handouts. I've designed them in black and white so you can photocopy them inexpensively.

The inspiration for these delightful projects are paintings Vincent Van Gogh created in the fall. He really captures the beauty of Autumn in these particular pieces.

These mixed media projects use oil pastels, tempera paints, chalks, sulphite paper, and construction paper along with painted paper scraps to create the most beautiful fall paintings any parent, grandparent or teacher would loved to frame.

These lessons are great for ages 6-12 but many of these lessons can be adapted for students when using these directions.
