Re: [art_education] Preschool lesson for Van Gogh's ROOM
Re: [art_education] Preschool lesson for Van Gogh's ROOMPreschool? Talk about their own rooms. Lots of brainstorming. Get ready.
They will love talking about their own rooms. All this, and show them Van
Gogh’s room == his painting. They can draw or paint their own rooms. Maybe
they could use some black markers to outline important objects. Though they
should not bother to copy Van Gogh’s work, they can look closely at his work
as inspiration for their own work.
Or, you can use very thick paints and they can apply paint like the
“impasto” Van Gogh used (very thick tempera will do for preschool), or
fingerpaints, and they can paint anything...use sticks or flat plastic
knives to apply paint, or fingers.

Hi everyone, I'm sharing this painting, Room at Arles by Van Gogh, with a
group of preschoolers :) tomorrow. I have some ideas in mind, such as
talking about line and cool colors...however do any of you have a lesson
plan for this painting that I can gear towards this age group? Any art
project ideas associated with this painting?
Thanks for all of your help! We're developing an art appreciation program
in our preschool that will get parents also interested in volunteering in
the elementary schools' art docent programs - :) Jenna in Alameda, CA
- thanks MaryAnn! I was also thinking of referring to "Goodnight Moon" - the person who sold the print to me mentioned that it reminded her of that book. :) This will be fun.:) JennaOn Apr 1, 2007, at 7:08 PM, MaryAnn F. Kohl wrote:
