    Van Gogh display--each child does a sunflower

    Van Gogh bulletin board. Each student makes a creative and unique flower to add to the pot! (Or you could connect to the idea that each one of us is unique and different, together we are even more beautiful.)

    Great collaborative effort. Each child makes a flower and then they are quartered and rearranged. This would make a lovely permanent piece for the school.

    Sunflowers for Van Gogh

    First Grade art students are studying the art of Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at many of his paintings and discussed his unique brush strokes that create such vivid textures in his colorful paintings. We then read a great book called "Vincent's Colors" from the Metropolitan Museum of Art that shows many of Van Gogh's artworks accompanied by his own words describing them, from letters to his brother Theo.

    Beautiful collaborative project!

    Everyone gets a square with a quarter circle, this is the end result.
