Artist Study ~ Van Gogh

DSCN6222 By Grant ~ age 10

Every term, we like to study an artist and his or her works.  This term we are studying Van Gogh. 

Art Activity Pack: Van Gogh (Art Activity Packs)

We are using Van Gogh: Art Activity Pack as the spine of our artist study.

For our first art activity, the children were asked to draw a picture that showed they were thinking about Van Gogh such as a yellow chair or a sunflower, etc.

Looking at their pictures, I could see that they were inspired by the movement and colors that Van Gogh used in his art.

Their Van Gogh inspired art now hangs in our little “art gallery”.  {which I will share one day}
