First grade learned about Vincent Van Gogh as they created two pieces of artwork with flowers as the subject. We emphasized "symmetry" and "balance" with this first project. They used sponges to add the flower petals.
This project was left as a sub plan for my first graders. It was one of those projects where I didn't want to give them back...they were so cheery that I just wanted to plaster the entire series on my classroom walls.
I am a K - 5th grade art teacher at Wilson Creek Elementary and Anna McDonald School in Manhattan, IL. I am also a mother of two little girls (who share my love of art)!
