Art History Lessons: Van Gogh Sunflowers

This can be used by K-through-4th grade students.

Included: PDF, 8 Pages

Vincent Van Gogh’s artworks, in particular his Sunflowers paintings, are beautiful to me. Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch painter who was born 1853 in Holland, is now well-known. Did you know that in 1888 he moved to France to create an artists’ community? Did you know that the sunflower was Vincent’’s favorite flower? These bits of art history are so much fun to share with students, and I also love creating art projects.

Van Gogh painted sunflowers in Arles, France while he was there. To the Dutch, sunflowers were a symbol of devotion and loyalty but the sunflower had a special significance for Van Gogh.  Van Gogh created seven Sunflowers In Vases. Paul Gauguin was his bedroom decorator, and Van Gogh created the first version of these paintings.

Beautiful pieces can be made using tempera paint in bold colors and big strokes on water-color paper. I encourage my students to incorporate different media into their art classes, allowing them to make beautiful masterpieces.

The free PDF contains oil pastels as well as tempera paints. It also includes water color paper.
