Fantastic Finish: Painting in the style of van Gogh
In our art and English lessons we have been learning about van Gogh where we wrote a fact file about his life and achievements. We then practised making tints and shades of a colour before trying out the type of brushstrokes van Gogh used in some of his paintings. As the Fantastic Finish to our All Around the World topic, we worked as a class to create a collaborative piece of art. We painted The Sea at Saintes-Maries by van Gogh. Some of us painted the sky, some the sea and some the boats. We had to look carefully at the colours that were used in the original painting. Take a look at our final piece below.
