This bundle of teaching goodies includes the following:
A comprehensive presentation covering many aspects of Van Gogh life and works. The presentation includes a script which I have also uploaded separately. The script includes questions for an interactive learning experience. There are slides on the following:
Introduction, birth and death dates, pre-artist jobs * Overview of famous works * The Potato Eaters * Who influenced his work * How his work changed * His portraits * Letters to Theo * His Drawings * The Sunflowers * His room in Arles * The Starry Night * His Death * His burial place * Who he has influence * His influence on fashion x 2 * The End.
A page of links to useful sites and YouTube clips, many of which could be used for starters to lessons or home works to extend learning.
A Van Gogh mark making worksheet. I have used this sheet and asked students to make the marks using different media. Stick and ink is particularly effective.
Plus a Van Gogh word search.
UPDATED: I have added a Van Gogh resource sheet which includes images, themes and keywords. Great to put on desks and keep his images fresh in your students minds.
*UPDATED AGAIN* I have just added a different VG mark making sheet! Areas of a VG drawing have been selected with squares. Students can copy these sections into their sketchbook using different media.
**UPDATES AGAIN** I have now added a 'Paint Like Van Gogh' worksheet. This is to use with paint or pastels.
I hope you find this presentation useful. If so, please leave some positive feedback.
