Fabulous Resource pack

I love that this is cross curricular and allows students to create their own Van Gogh pieces. Small touches, like buntings, crosswords and templates is excellent. Thanks for another great Artist resource. Looking forward to more.

Wow! Absolutely perfect and just what I was looking for. I love the creative templates where the children have the opportunity to create their own painting.

Perfect for our Artist Study!

My class is Van Gogh class and our Art focus for next term is an Artist Study of Van Gogh. This pack is a wonderful selection of resources that will support my teaching of the whole unit, not just in Art lessons but also in our English Biography writing.I use Teaching Pack resources all the time and this pack is a wonderful addition to my ever growing resource library!

This is a lovely mini pack and provides some very easy lessons for someone like myself who is non artistic. A great touch to include colouring sheets of some of Van Gogh's masterpieces. With biographical materials, comprehension, create your own and colouring sheets, the pack not only covers many curricular areas but is also suitable for various ages and stages as well as abilities within a class. For anyone who is interested, Microsoft jigsaws has some of these pictures in a jigsaw pack for further activities. This subscription for Teaching Packs just gets better and better with all the different subjects an amazing price. Thankyou!!

Thank you for another super pack. It would be wonderful to have more packs featuring artists and representing different art movements such as Monet for impressionism or Roy Lichtenstein for pop art.
Keep the great resources coming!
