Tall Tulips

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA for one of the professional development days.  If you've never been there, you should definitely visit!  Its a great art resource right in our backyard!  You can see real artist working and visit their studio space.  One of the artists I got to meet was Matthew Johnston, a painter.  I used his paintings of "Tall Tulips" as inspiration for this project.  First grade students loved learning about a local artist! I showed them pictures of Matthew Johnston's studio and a few samples of his artwork.  Check out their interpretation of Tall Tulips below!
