This is the first of the Meet the Masters Series of art lessons beginning with Vincent van Gogh. This lesson is 14 pages that exercises lessons related to reading, vocabulary, art history, drawing, and shading. It is detailed and broken up into minutes to enable a tight lesson. There are four work days of assignments in this excellent lesson plan. Above all, it is designed to relay meaning to each student through gleaning the life of the artist and making compare and contrast relationships to the student by simply being human and learning to seeing beauty in every day life. This lesson may be taught to 6th graders right up to seniors in high school.
