Product Description
This worksheet is best given after students have listened to "Vincent" together by Don McLean (lyrics are included.) Students will learn about Ekphrasis, which is basically, one art form inspiring another. In this case, Vincent Van Gogh's life and paintings inspired McLean to write this song. Questions about ekphrasis, imagery, other literary elements are included. (I taught this showing a slideshow of Van Gogh's paintings and the song on Youtube.)
