Art History month #2: Vincent Van Gogh

Welcome back to month #2.  This month we studied Vincent Van Gogh.


Week #1 we read:

Van Gogh
by Mike Venzia


For our project, we used Home Art Studio Grade 3 dvd.

This project was lots of fun, and lots of mess!  Shaving cream, paint, and all kinds of things that boys love!





Week #2  we read:


Vincent Van Gogh 
by Catherine Nichols


Van Gogh's Wheat Field with Crows.  Please see HERE.


Week # 3 we read:


Van Gogh
by Shelley Swanson Sateren


Starry Night.  Please go HERE.

Week #4 we read:

Vincent Van Gogh
by Adam Klein


This was a swirly landscape I had him do using paint thickened with flour and then using the tip of his paint brush to add swirls.


He also did this for Van Gogh's sunflowers.  See HERE.




Stay tuned for next month as we take on Jackson Pollack!



Blessings!!
