The Junior K students have been learning about Vincent Van Gogh and his paintings, in particular, his sunflowers. Last week, they used plaster gauze to create 3D sunflowers, and today they began painting. Their goal with painting was to use yellow, orange, and white in short, choppy brushstrokes- similar to Van Gogh’s style. The colors mixed and swirled together in beautiful ways. And added bonus today- they got to taste test sunflower seeds!
