Vincent van Gogh, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the Post-Impressionism art movement, was the inspiration the Grade 1 students used to bring paint brush to canvas, in an effort to try their hand at this technique. The lesson began with a close observation of Van Gogh’s famous “Starry Night”. Students had the opportunity to describe the painting and share their opinion and interpretation of this unique piece of art. They observed how Van Gogh used lots of swirling strokes and different shades of blue to represent the wind.
Stirred by Starry Night, each of our Grade 1 students took to the canvas to try their hand at painting, Van Gogh style! Swish, swash, small swirls, big swirls and soon our classroom was filled with many amazing creations. Here are a few of our budding, starry-eyed artists with their finished products.
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the private school community of which we are so proud!
