School groups

As your students embark on their journey through Vincent’s life, they will use hands-on interaction, investigation and play to learn about:

  • Colour theory, perspective drawing and art history.
  • How Van Gogh’s works and artistic practice relate to general scientific principles.
  • How we use scientific techniques to investigate Van Gogh’s art works.

Children will also discover a lot about themselves; Vincent’s journey as an artist was challenging, and from his letters we know that he often wondered about identity, what it meant to be creative, how to develop his passion and what friendship meant to him.
