Van Gogh - Sunflowers Year 1 Art

Late in the summer term, my class got arty. It all started with Van Gogh. On a whim to incorporate art and nature into Science week, I showed the class Van Gogh's paintings. I froze his famous sunflowers painting on the board and let the class go with watercolour pencils. And this was the result! It made me realise, sometimes you do not need to provide step by step instructions as children will use their own creativity to create something fabulous. We repeated with some other artists (The Scream painting was popular!) to finish the school year, and next year I'll definitely be using famous art pieces more!
