We are studying Vincent Van Gogh today (and tomorrow). Along with this book and Confessions of a Homeschooler’s Art Curriculum I came across this video on Youtube that is of one of my favorite Don Mclean songs. Very appropriate for the subject at hand… I also took the opportunity to teach them a bit about depression and other mental illnesses (just a side note, not the primary focus of our lesson).
Just a few of our favorites
Tomorrow we will be breaking out the paints and trying our hands at reproducing some of his masterpieces.
