Van Gogh - a Lesson Plan Idea
Inspire your Children with the 'The Life of Van Gogh' famous artist video
Start your Van Gogh art day with our art video of the life of one of the world’s greatest artists, Vincent Van Gogh. Let your children discover what motivated and inspired him, what drove him on, despite his personal problems and lack of success, and why he became a world famous artist. Art teaching has never been so exciting.
The video will keep your children enthralled and engaged throughout its 35 minute length. My experience tells me the video is appropriate for Year 2 ( 6 to 7 year olds) and above, but the final decision rests with you, the art teacher.
Teachers Please Note
We value the role of art education in schools, but understand that some famous artists produced controversial art works and led far from ‘normal’ lives. For this reason, in my videos, aspects of the artist’s lives may have been simplified, amended or exaggerated to make their stories accessible to kids. Paul, Artist in School make every effort to create accurate interpretations of each artist’s life – we accept no responsibility for the consequences of any factual inaccuracies.
