Art Appreciation lesson for Starry Night Over the Rhone by Vincent Van Gogh from the Post Impressionism Movement.
The lesson includes artwork and questions (along with answers) which cause the student to look closely at the painting. Also included are suggested activities for further learning that relate to the painting, a small introduction to the artist, the art period and/or movement identified, and a link to a high quality image for classroom projection.
Claude Monet said, “Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.”
This is the concept for which this art APPRECIATION lesson was modeled. The questions encourage the student to look closely at the painting’s detail and enjoy its beauty. The student learns without even realizing it.
The picture is landscape and the text is portrait. If you print it, select "Auto portrait/landscape" under the orientation menu of the print screen so the orientation will automatically print correctly.
