This month we are studying about Vincent Van Gogh. The painting we have learned by Vincent is shown below, "Vase with Twelve Sunflowers." After learning a little bit about Vincent, I set up this art activity for the children so they could draw their own sunflowers. I have read a little bit from the book Sunflowers and Swirly Stars so the children could learn about Vincent. Then, I got two real sunflowers and placed them into a vase with the painting hanging nearby. It has been fun to see the many variations of sunflower drawings that have resulted from this activity. A few are shown below.
