Hello! I'm a Dominican Art teacher/Artist living in Florida. The idea for this lesson sprouted from the desire to showcase a contemporary Dominican painter whom I could link with an artist from the past. Candido Bidó was the one! his art has an impressionistic influence which made him the perfect candidate for this lesson. The file contains daily lesson plans to cover 50 minutes worth of class time. I like to know what I'm doing everyday, and that is why I make my lesson plans using this format. In these pages you will find a curricular connection to Language Arts. Your students will use some time to think critically, to make connections between Candido Bidó and Van Gogh and then produce a Candido Bidó inspired artwork. Artwork samples are included in this lesson plan.
