Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous artists in the world, which is why it’s important to teach about his life and artwork. His Postimpressionist style of painting is well-known and is fun to recreate!
This week-long lesson plan introduces middle school art students to Vincent van Gogh’s life and art artwork. The lecture includes checkpoints to engage the students as they take notes in the printable note guides included. After the art history lecture, students will get to make their own projects based on van Gogh’s work with water color paints. The guidelines are shown with the rubric, student examples, and brief PowerPoint demonstration. There is very little preparation required.
