Van Gogh Art Game Bundle
Get your students excited about learning art history by creating Vincent Van Gogh inspired artworks. Little artists will have fun re-creating Starry Night, Sunflowers, Olive Trees, and Wheatfield while playing an engaging roll-a-dice game. Fill up your art sub plan folder with no-prep, fuss-free art projects that are easy to implement for substitute teachers. This Van Gogh art game bundle will be a helpful addition to your choice-based arts program.
It’s also great for art integration in the regular classroom, homeschooling parents supplementing art instruction, and art teachers wanting to liven up their art lessons with a game.
I’ve included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a “you pick” board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I’ve added digital spinner wheels!
First, print out the Van Gogh game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give your students dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. If you have access to a smartboard or projector, use the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. It will guide the students during each part of the art project.
Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
If you are substituting or need a fast finisher activity, use the included coloring page.

GREAT sub plans. Sometimes sub plans can just be time fillers, but these are actually educational and super fun. – Heather V.
