A Van Gogh mark making worksheet. I have used this sheet and asked students to make the marks using a range of different media. Stick and ink is particularly effective.
A second mark making sheet! (Pictured above) Areas of a VG drawing have been selected with squares. Students can copy these sections into their sketchbook using different media, therefore learning about different media and his work at the same time.
A Van Gogh information sheet which includes images, themes and keywords. Great to stick in sketchbooks or keep on desks whilst students work.
'Paint Like Van Gogh' worksheet. (Pictured above) High resolution details of Van Gogh works enable students to carefully copy his work and learn his painting style. Working with paint or pastels would be great on this worksheet.
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.
Plus a Van Gogh word search.
