During Art week, we looked at the artist Vincent Van Gogh.
Children started by looking at Van Gogh's life and how the experiences in his life influenced his art work. We focused on what emotions Van Gogh was feeling within some of his pieces of art work and how they often contrasted with one another.
We then looked at the different techniques Van Gogh used within his paintings, focusing on different shades and brush strokes. Children then practised these techniques in their art books.
Children then had a look at Van Gogh's famous art piece 'Starry Night' and had a go at drawing their own version.
Finally, children created their own 'Starry Night' painting, applying their practised techniques.
