Post-Impressionist DVD Series
Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso are the featured artists in the Post-Impressionist DVD Series taught by Mrs. Beth and her animated drop of paint, Gasfy. With Mrs. Beth’s unique storytelling abilities and Gasfy’s silly antics, your students will be introduced to the artists that influenced this era and their inspiring works of art.
The Post- Impressionist Series DVD collection consists of 12 videos (approximately 22 minutes in duration) and include: 1 video introducing the Post-Impressionist period, 4 videos on van Gogh, 3 videos on Matisse and 4 videos on Picasso. In addition, the Curriculum Bundle will be provided. The Curriculum Bundle includes 16 lesson plans that correspond to each episode, the "Name that Artist" Assessment Game/Test, Flashcards, TEKS alignments, and Biblical integration available upon request. The lesson plans establish clear objectives, give multiple art activity suggestions that are geared toward grades 1-8, encourage critical thinking, provide vocabulary words, incorporate writing assignments and other cross curricular studies. Initially, the series was written as a semester study: 16 weeks of 1 hour weekly art curriculum that is aligned with the state TEKS standards. However, the curriculum has the flexibility to be used as an after school enrichment or summer art camp.
