3rd and 4th Grade Art

I am sorry to say that the 3rd and 4th Grade class did not have an art class last week. The Monday holiday and then the Tuesday snow day cancelled their art classes. We will hit the ground running with the sketches and layouts for our next project. We are beginning a longer term painting project focusing on the work of Vincent Van Gogh and his paintings of sunflowers. The students will work from life, creating a still-life set up with flowers in a vase, set on a cloth. This is traditionally one of the favorite projects of both students and parents as it really shows what work the students this age are capable of and they gain several new skills with this project. 

Vincent Van Gogh's  "Tournesois" (Sunflowers) 1888
