A day at a Virtual Art Gallery ESL lesson plan

In this 60-minute lesson the students will use some already known vocabulary to critique paintings but in a context that they haven’t used it before, along with some new, advanced vocabulary. They will watch a model video of a professional critiquing a painting, work together to categorise words based on their function and finally use the target language to critique their chosen paintings in an interactive speaking activity inside a virtual art gallery!

We keep things free and as you can see the website is free from annoying ads! Unfortunately, there’s a running cost to everything including the website and of course the time needed to create the material.
For this reason, I added a PayPal donation button to let you choose whether you want to support our website. The smallest donation can help me continue doing what I love.
