Van Gogh Sunflowers
I just LOVE teaching about Van Gogh. Kids can learn so much from him. Such as his unique sense of color and texture, his depiction of movement and rhythm, his whimsical subject matter, and his sheer determination in his art. I read the book 'Camille and the Sunflowers' before we began our lesson. Students drew their still life with sharpies and then used watercolors to add color. I showed them how to mix colors together on their paper like Van Gogh did. Aren't they adorable!?
