Art Vincent Van Gogh

Date: 5th Mar 2021 @ 4:28pm


We have spent two weeks learning about Vincent Van Gogh. We found out that he was born in Holland in 1853. At first he started work in his uncles art shop in the Hague. After that he wanted to be a teacher, finally when he was twenty seven years old he decided to dedicate his life to art. He drew, sketched and painted everything he saw: animals, landscapes, houses and other things but mainly people. We explored his work and discussed what we liked and disliked about it. Then we sketched and experimented mixing colours and explored using different brush stokes. Then we recreated his sunflower and starry night paintings with the new skills that we learnt.
