Van Gogh’s Sunflowers

Continuing the sessions looking at famous artists, I chose to design a workshop around Van Gogh’s sunflowers. Spending so much time in my garden with all of  the flowers is filling me with so much joy and inspiration! Before the workshop started, I did get a request from one of the children, to design a Van Gogh workshop – so I was very pleased with this little coincidence!

So, the focus of this workshops was concentrating on drawing flowers with different shapes and patterned centres and using sunny colours (or whatever colours they wanted to choose!) We also talked about different shapes for the vases, and how the choice of background can effect the overall feel of the artwork.

I hope you agreee – the finished artworks are absolutely beautiful and have properly cheered up my day!

All artworks are made by children age 7 – 12yrs

Dates for future on-line workshops are on my How to Book page
