This project mashes up Van Gogh's famous sunflowers with his Starry Night as a background.
Grade 4 - 6 students started off by practicing sketching a sunflower on scrap paper. Once they were confident in how they looked, they sketched them onto blue 9 x 12" construction paper.
Using oil pastels, I demonstrated how to mimic Van Gogh's technique of short strokes
and his ability to mix colours.
Students coloured the sunflowers first them moved onto the background,
trying to recreate Starry Night using swirls and wavy lines.
