Historical, Culturally Diverse, Standards-Based Art Lessons to Inspire Young Artists

About the Artist

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)
Gauguin's life and art are presented creatively to make art history come alive.  Audio excerpts and dress-up props motivate the children to investigate Gauguin’s life and artistic genius.  The student artists use oil pastel on black paper to create a Tahitian landscape in the abstract style of Gauguin.
