I love to use movement and interactive activities to introduce famous artwork. In this lesson, students will use different types of movement to mimic Van Gogh's "Starry Night". They will also participate in a simple writing activity to review movement vocabulary. This lesson plan includes national visual arts and dance standards and is adaptable to suit your needs.
This lesson plan can be used as an art, music, or dance lesson. It includes an introduction, a movement activity, a review, and a sample assessment rubric. This lesson can be used in 1 or 2 class periods.
