Van Gogh Sunflowers

While studying Vincent Van Gogh, second graders created their own unique versions of Van Gogh's famous sunflower paintings.  We read the book "Camille and the Sunflowers" to get a better picture of Van Gogh's life. Here is a video of the book!

We used a technique called scumbling (controlled scribbling) to show texture in our artwork.  Then we added watercolor paint to fill in the white spaces!

I got the idea for this project from Mrs. Bandstra the art teacher over at Alward Elementary. Here is a link to her blog! She does cool projects with the kids!

Learning Goals: I can...
- Create my own unique version of Van Gogh's sunflowers
- Use scumbling to show texture
- Tell about Van Gogh
