Year 5 Van Gogh Workshop
On January 16th,17th and 18th January, the Year 5 Students were busy channelling their inner painters! A local Artist- Manjit Panesar- came into school to host a workshop focusing on Vincent Van Gogh. The children spent an hour learning about the Artist’s life and experimenting with oil paints.
The children then had the opportunity to create a flower painting based on Van Gogh’s sunflowers.
Feedback from the children:
Yuusuf Kamal 5RT- Van Gogh’s sunflowers are so different from Georgia O’Keeffe because he did closed composition and Georgia O’keeffe did open composition.
Riley 5JR- We didn’t even need to use water for the oil paints, we had to use linseed oil which was really fun to use and I felt like a real artist!
Zoya 5TF- Using the palette knives and the painting plates was so fun, it made me feel like a professional artist. I really liked the flowers I created.
