Van Gogh-ing Back in Art History!

Firefly Art

Vincent Van Gogh Sunflowers

We brushed up on our art history this week by drawing Van Gogh Sunflowers! This week was especially fun because we got to learn about the famous artist Van Gogh, while recreating his sunflower masterpiece! This art history project used oil pastels.

We created our sunflowers while learning about style and expression. Even though we used a famous painting for this week’s inspiration, we didn’t shy away from adding our own personal touches!

This project included:

  • Imagining why Van Gogh painted sunflowers the way he did
  • Recreating Van Gogh’s vivid brush strokes through oil pastel
  • Creating details using oil pastels
