Students will look at the work of Vincent Van Gogh (in the form of books or posters not included in this lesson packet), examining his style and the materials he used.
The life and times of the artist will also be discussed.
Students will discuss what they see as they first guess and then learn how Van Gogh created his artwork. Did he use paint? What kind of paint? What was the world like during his lifetime, etc…
Techniques will be shared as students further discover how Van Gogh created his paintings.
Each student will then have the opportunity to create his or her own sunflowers in a vase painting in the style Vincent Van Gogh.
A crossword puzzle, word search puzzle, artist bio and black-line illustration of a master work are included.
