The painting The bedroom is from 1888. View this painting and discuss it using elements of art. What do you see? What stands out? What do you see on the wall? What can you say about the perspective? What materials did Van Gogh use? What do you think about the colors? Do you like the painting or not, and why is that?
Transfer the white lines from the image to the linoleum using carbon paper and a pen. Cut out the white lines and parts.
Cut out your name in mirror writing at the bottom left.
