Students get lessons from a forger

In thirty minutes, my art history students attempted to bang out a self portrait in the style of Vincent van Gogh. Vincent was a daily painter who spend up to and hardly more than 6 hours painting a portrait of himself. Watching a utube video of a master forger who spent time in jail- the students tried to follow his prompts and add the energy and speed to their renditions. Though half the class freaked at the thought of actually painting, they seemed to have fun at it. I think tomorrow I will let them do a little more on their surfaces.
