Van Gogh’s “Bedroom in Arles” Finding Perspective

Van Gogh’s Bedroom at Arles

Like our other Van Gogh art lessons, where I use an outline for our art appreciation lesson, I downloaded an outline drawing of Bedroom at Arles, which we coloured in using felt-tipped pens.

I found the Seven laws of Perspective at Heart Of The Matter and looked for a way to implement these principles in our Van Gogh Appreciation lesson.

We used several other art books to look for examples of these laws of perspective.  A quick and simple art appreciation lesson!

Here are my notes ~ Seven Laws of Perspective with simple outline diagrams of the perspective principles. Click on the link for your free download.

  3. I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and would like to thank you for making these valuable resources available to us! We have just begun our journey with picture/artist study and the notebooking pages, timeline information, and other information you have provided have been very helpful.

    Just thought you should know. :o)


  4. What a great lesson! I think we want to do this one, too. You have laid it out so neatly. Thank you for sharing. Did you teach this all in one sitting, or was this a multiday or multihour lesson?


    • This was a quick lesson – done in about 1 hour! The theory took up a quarter of the hour and they coloured the picture in the remaining time.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
