Step 1: Introducing The Masters_____



A Multimedia Online gallery tour for students and teachers is your introduction to the life and work of each artist. Guided by Pierre, our friendly French companion, students will follow the teacher-taught curriculum while interacting with the works of Masters such as…

 


VAN GOGH, CASSATT, MONDRIAN, PICASSO, MONET, HOMER and many more

 


The online slides are choreographed with our Curriculum Downloads that accompany each level. The teacher reads from a script to present history about each picture and biographical information about each artist. This curriculum script is filled with fascinating details and questions that are presented in an interactive format that avoids lecturing to the student.

TEACHER’S SCRIPT BELOW TAKEN FROM “INTRODUCING THE MASTERS” CURRICULUM -Van Gogh-Ages 8-9-

 

EXAMPLE SLIDE - Starry night


When you look up at a starlit sky, does it make you feel peaceful? (YES) That’s how most artists show a starry sky. Not van Gogh! He looked out his hospital window at the starry night, and painted this exploding picture. He didn’t see peaceful, quiet stars. He felt the power of stars as great suns whirling in space. How does he show the motion and action of the sky? (SWIRLING BRUSHSTROKES, WAVES OF LINES, BRIGHTNESS IN NIGHT SKY) He painted SPIRALS in his exciting sky. A spiral is a circle that keeps on going around and around.


Do you see much texture? (YES) His swirling brushstrokes and thick paint created so much texture that your eye never rests while looking at it. This painting was a favorite of Vincent’s. Do you like it? It is one of his most popular and famous paintings throughout the world today.


Dependent upon which artist and level that is studied, there are several audio clips, musical pieces, and interactive games to make this learning experience fun and memorable.
