Class Experience

Students will improve their learning about art appreciation by learning about one of art history's most iconic artists, Vincent Van Gogh.
Students will learn about, the specific art movement, Post Impressionism using the elements of design in a guided art lesson creating their own reimagined personalized "Starry Night."  
I am offering this class because I have extensive art history experience in a B.F.A. undergraduate degree. I have been teaching art history to children for over 30 years and successful at relating historical art content to children because of my childhood art experiences included art appreciation at a very young age.   I believe we all can learn from art history to better our present.   Every picture tells a story that is worth listening to. 
Complete their Starry Night drawing, taking time to finish.
A handout about Vincent Van Gogh will be presented at the end of the lesson. I will be modeling the lesson on 9"x 12" Mixed Media Sketchbook (white paper) and Markers * Many children have art boxes filled with different media, feel free to use the following recommended media listed below for more vivid results: * Markers *Oil Pastels *Pastels
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The teacher and learners interact through written messages via email or chat. The teacher is offering an optional assessment about finished student artwork via email as well.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
