Astronomy exercises for the artist: Van Gogh the observer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
