Make a Van Gogh-Style Self-Portrait

Learn by doing! Young artists try their hand at creating their own self-portraits in the style of Vincent van Gogh. This worksheet contains a brief explanation of the essential qualities of van Gogh's art: complementary colors and distinctive brushstrokes. Then painters follow step by step instructions to create two self-portraits using a photocopies of pictures. As a final, closure activity, learners write a letter to a friend analyzing their work, just as van Gogh often did!

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
