Astronomy Exercises for the Artist: van Gogh the Observer
Lawlor, Timothy M.
Astronomy Education Review, v12 n1 p010202-1--010202-11 Dec 2013
We present a set of exercises designed to be used in a survey astronomy course, an introductory astronomy laboratory course, or in secondary education. The exercises use the great works of Vincent van Gogh but could be easily extended to other works of art. We also include a brief description of our current practices, lectures, and group questions as examples of material that should be discussed prior to use of these "AstroArt" exercises. (Contains 7 figures.)
