Be inspired to believe, achieve and succeed together

Thursday - Art

We are going to look at the work of Van Gogh.

Today - think about line and texture. 

Look at the lines Van Gogh has used - follow them with your finger.  Look carefully which direction they are going in.

Which colours has he used?  Where has he used white paint?  Why?


Set up a vase with a flowering branch and water in it.

If you want an extra challenge - lie a book behind carefully.

1. Lightly and carefully sketch the outline of the vase and flower (and the book if you are doing the challenge).

2. Paint the picture in the style of Van Gogh’s ‘Blossoming Almond Branch’.

Use lines of paint in your picture to create the illusion of depth and shadow.
