2nd GRADE--Van Gogh Sunflowers

The 2nd Grade students studied the artist Vincent Van Gogh and his artwork. We also read the book, Camille and the Sunflowers. The students were able to create a giant sunflower creating emphasis in their artwork. Then they were shown how to blend colors using oil pastels. The students had to choose a cool color for their background to make their sunflower "pop" in their piece of art.

  5. Background done after the sunflower? What kind of paper was used? Did the kids sketch in their sunflower with pencil first before using oil pastels?
