Master Artist Videos
We begin our study of master artists with Vincent Van Gogh. I always present questions for the student's interactive journal called a Fact File before watching the video. Students are prepped by the Fact File and it usually generates a good deal of interest in the famous artists we study. During the film we take a test.
In combination with watching the film over Salvador Dali, students will also watch the Disney film Destino, which was a film that was originally conceptualized by Dali in 1945 but was not finished until after his death in 1989. The film was released in 2003.
The fifth artist we study is Andy Warhol who proves that you don't have to have a flair for the classical arts to have a major impact. He perfected the artist image and beguiled people with his enigmatic answers.
