Yesterday was Grade 3/4 Planning Day. Therefore, I had the opportunity to teach 3/4A for a double lesson.
The students learnt about Vincent Van gogh and the way he applied paint using lots of lines and a mix of colours. They began this task with some observational drawing. Students sketched the cherry blossoms and the vase I had placed them in. They used oil pastels to imitate the textured brush strokes of Van gogh – rendering their vase, blossom branches and leaves.
Students applied pink paint to bubble wrap and used this to add blossom flowers to their artwork – stamping throughout the branches. This was a really fun mixed media activity.
