It’s Saturday, August 26, 2014, and time for Art at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

National Gallery of Art – Van Gogh Masterpieces

Age Range: All (All grades – children with parental supervision)

 

At this site, visitors are treated to a fabulous tour of some of the best works of Vincent Van Gogh. Using Van Gogh’s Masterpieces and interesting text, the visitor is introduced to Van Gogh’s early works, his various “periods” in Paris, Arles, and Saint-Rémy and his self-portraits. Periods include:
  • Introduction – Early Works
  • The Potato Eaters
  • Holland to Paris
  • Self-Portraits
  • Paris
  • Japanese Influence
  • Arles
  • The Yellow House
  • Saint-Rémy
  • Auvers-sur-Oise

When you get to the site, two screens will appear. The one on the left displays the text that you can follow to take the tour; the one on the right shows a floor plan of the museum that you can click on to visit whatever room that you want (each features different Van Gogh artwork). Sticking with the tour will give you a better context as each section progresses from the early works to the various periods in Van Gogh’s creations. Either way, you will be treated to some fabulous art, along with insightful commentary on the works – and the artist!
