This activity introduces the pupils to landscape painting in the style of Van Gogh. A large Van Gogh-style picture is used to illustrate his technique to the pupils, which is then broken down into smaller segments for a close-up look. Van Gogh's famous line technique is discussed and the pupils have the opportunity to make a picture using the whiteboard tools.
Activities are suggested for the pupils to make paintings of landscapes using Van Gogh's technique. The activities suggested could be completed over a course of two or three lessons, including a Van Gogh worksheet, where the pupils find out facts about Van Gogh.
