Van Gogh Sunflowers

Second grade students learned about the artist Vincent Van Gogh and his "14 Sunflowers" painting.  Using tempera paint and oil pastel, they created their own still life painting.  If you see a 2nd grader around Yowell, ask them their favorite fact about Van Gogh.  Their answers might surprise you! 

"He cut off his ear!  I wish he didn't do that."

"He wasn't rich and only sold 1 painting his whole life."

"Vincent and his brother Theo argued a lot."

"He showed lots of brush strokes in his work to show his feelings."
