Sunflowers have always been the flower that I think best captures who I am (you know in flower form).
Tall happy flowers always head up, looking for the sun. They inspire me.
So when I discovered that this week’s art lesson was centered around the sunflower, I knew it was going to be a joy-filled experience.
Lourdes smelling a sunflower for the very first time.
The weather had finally given in to the season of spring and we were just getting used to waking up in the mornings and running outside to soak up the sun.
We do art in the late afternoons on Wednesdays, right before dinner which is nice because Khari gets to participate. This week’s lesson was all about Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. After pointing out parts of the sunflower, they were ready to begin creating their masterpiece!
While they worked on their art they learned interesting facts about Van Gogh and art work produced in France in the 1890’s.
They also learned about techniques Van Gogh used in a lot of his paintings which was thick application of paints and vivid colors.
Lela thought is was such a terrible thing that he didn’t get to experience how much people valued his work while he was living.
After their art was complete they watched a video of Van Gogh’s painting.
The house was filled with awwwws…
Once again, we all were grateful for such a good art lesson from HomeArtStudio.
Stay Encouraged & Be Blessed!
