CMS art students study Van Gogh

Campbellsville Middle School art students recently studied Van Gogh’s artwork, and then drew their own work based on his style.

 

In Jo Ann Harris’s class, students discussed how artists are often known for creating a series of work, such as Van Gogh’s many paintings of sunflowers.

 

Students discussed how Van Gogh used different shades of warm and cool colors to paint many different types of sunflowers.

 

They studied the painting “Starry Night” to see how Van Gogh used paint to create texture and how he blended colors together.

 

Harris then asked students to draw their own sunflowers with oil pastels.
