Vincent Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853. He was part of a group of painters called Post-Impressionists. Artists during this time painted colors that expressed their emotions rather than portraying a realistic object. Van Gogh painted seriously for about 9 years and painted almost 900 paintings. Sadly he only sold one painting before he died at age 37. Want to teach a unit on Vincent Van Gogh? He is a perfect artist to introduce to children because of his use of color, texture and movement. This bundle includes everything you need to teach any age grade (K-6) about Van Gogh's art, even if you are not an artist. I show you how to teach kids how to draw Van Gogh's most influential pieces of art, how to paint like Van Gogh using supplies you have at home or in the classroom and offer you drawing guides that make the process so much easier. The lessons this bundle use basic supplies: chalk pastels, oil pastels, tempera paint, and acrylic paints. Don't have on of these supplies? I always suggest alternate ways to color or paint a drawing. The lessons in this Bundle are based on some of Van Gogh's most famous works of art: The Starry Night 1889 Irises and Vase with Irises Sunflower Series Wheat Field with Cypresses 1889
