Vincent Van Gogh and Post-Impressionism

As one of the most famous and talented artists, in many ways Van Gogh is the face of Western European art history.  We are starting our journey into Art History with Van Gogh.  He was a post-impressionist.  Students are exploring his life and work. 

The Kindergartens watched this clip about Vincent Van Gogh. 

The 1st-6th graders watched this clip about Vincent Van Gogh's life and work.

The 4th-6th graders also watched this clip about the science behind some of Van Gogh's most famous work. 

This is just a fun optical illusion clip for you to try.
