3D Sunflowers with Van Gogh

Posted on

This fall the 4th grade class studied the work of Van Gogh—specifically his sunflowers!

We had a lot of fun painting the setting for our sunflowers and painting and cutting the sunflowers out of separate paper to achieve a more dimensional result!  Subtle details were added to the paintings with oil pastels, in small hatching marks to mimic the work of our famous artist.

To make the petals stand out a little more, the students curled them around a pencil.
