Create a collection of beautiful oil pastel drawings in the style of van Gogh's paintings, and hear about the artist's life!

Class experience

Students will practice using oil pastels while developing fundamental drawing skills including: drawing from observation, creating movement & texture, optical mixing (color theory), and shading.  It is a goal of this class that students will also become more confident and fluid in their drawing, and better equipped to construct their own creative artworks.
I love drawing with pastels-- they are so bright and fun!  Out of all of my public school art assignments, the van Gogh-inspired pastel drawings were probably the most consistently popular (and successful).  This class is an extension and expansion of those inspiring lessons!
Homework Offered
Students who tend to work more slowly may wish to use extra time after class to finish their artworks.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need the following supplies: - Oil pastel set (Pentel and Cray-Pas are my recommended brands-- a set of 25+ can be purchased on Amazon for under $10) - Colored paper/construction paper/tinted drawing paper (paper that is not white), size 8x10" or 9x12" - Pencil & eraser
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Younger students may need some help to set up their art space before class begins.
We talk about Van Gogh's life for about five minutes at the beginning of each class.  We briefly mention the end of his life (and quickly move on to how popular and famous his paintings are today). 
The reason I include this in my lesson is because I would rather approach the topic with sensitivity than allow it to be blurted out by a student (which often happens).
