School trip to the Van Gogh Exhibition
At the end of the week we learned a lot about the artist Vincent Van Gogh to prepare for our fun school trip to the Van Gogh Exhibition on Monday. We learned about the life of Van Gogh, what he looked like and then went on to study some of his artwork. We learned that he liked to paint people, self portraits, nature and landscapes. We really loved his painting ‘The Starry Night’ so we recreated it as a group using paints. We also loved his painting of the sunflowers and we used colouring pencils to recreate the same colours he used. We had to focus all all the different shapes and colours! There is a lot of details in his paintings so we had to focus really hard when colouring all the different lines.
