Subject: Who Is This Artist Videos - good for elementary

> Folks are frequently asking for video recommendations for elementary. I
> enjoyed these two Who Is the Artist? videos. One compares the work of
> Renoir, and Cassatt. The other compares the work of Cezanne, Van Gogh and
> Seurat. The first one focuses on portraits - people at play, friends and
> family, people at work. The second one focuses on landscape, environment.
> each video, background information is given of the artist along with a
> self-portrait.
> Students learn to recognize artists by their styles and techniques as well
> as subjects that dominate their work. I highly recommend these - suitable
> for upper elementary and up (I think OK for high school too - although
> geared for younger students). Throughout the program, viewers are asked to
> interact with the paintings as they are presented. You could pause and
> discuss in more detail. These videos are from Crystal Productions - each
> minutes long -- a perfect length.
> If anyone want links for the artists listed I would be happy to provide
> them.
> Happy viewing..... Please post more video recommendations (with a brief
> review) for elementary (They already have Linnet in Monet's Garden). I am
> helping a local resource center with their purchases. It would be great if
> you would also post a lesson that you have done in conjunction with the
> video.
