Art of the Week – Van Gogh

From Tad’s Monday art class….

Van Gogh

Apparently, they do a little art appreciation in the class as well.  They learned about Vincent van Gogh this week, and then replicated his self-portrait.  The kids cut out his head, glued it on the page, and then colored in the background and his clothes.  Tad says they used baby oil to blend colors, but I’m not exactly sure what medium they used.  I think it was some kind of watercolor.  The black lines are all Sharpie, so they wouldn’t bleed.

Ane was pleased, as Van Gogh is her favorite painter – mostly because she learned all about him in an episode of Doctor Who.

Have I mentioned how much Tad loves his art class?
