The other day I was in the mood for art ... surprise, surprise! As we're a homeschooling family, I decided that I would give my kids an impromptu art lesson!
I wanted the kids to explore using oil pastels to create their piece. I also want them to be somewhat familiar with the work of famous artists; so I picked 'Flowers' by Vincent Van Gogh for them to re-create.
We discussed the colour wheel, complementary colours, dimensions, and filling out the whole page. The only guidelines I gave my kids were ...
- To draw their preliminary sketch lightly
- Fill the whole page
- Try to eliminate the white of the paper
- Try to use complimentary colours
- Give your best and HAVE FUN!
Here's their finished pieces! I absolutely LOVE them all!
I'm hoping to frame these pieces and display them in our home!
I hope you're having a wonderful creative week!
