Aren't these Year 2 paintings inspired by Vincent Van Gogh simply divine? This is one of my all time favourite painting projects is great for 7/8 year olds. Firstly we look at how Van Gogh word with paint. We view paintings created by Vincent (great You Tube clips) and the composition that he used in the many aspects of his Sunflowers series.
We lightly sketch the position of the sunflowers- with circles only and the line that creates the table and the vase.
The other key to this piece is to paint 2 to 3 extra sunflowers, cut them out and add them to the piece later once framed so that they can be glued overlapping the frame- just give that second dimension.
Aren't they breathtaking!
