Introducing students to art history – to “masters” who have shaped artistic styles – can be challenging. “Sunflowers” by Vincent van Gogh is one of the most popular artworks in the world. The resource brings together the most important paintings of Vincent van Gogh and offers a comprehensive and collaborative project that your students can engage in. You’ll receive everything you need to begin a dialog and create your own “class classic.”
The concept is simple – the results are awesome!
What you will get:
The tiles are 7 ½” X 7 ½.” Each tile is labeled with a number (1 – 42) and unique – to represent a specific part of the image. They‘re calibrated to flow seamlessly into one anther to form the completed picture.
*Please view ALL THE TILES in “Preview.”
Using simple materials such as colored pencils, markers, crayons, paints, pastels – each student works independently on his/her “tile.” Once completed, the 42 tiles are joined together to form the whole. Then, trim off any excess paper. Tape the pieces together at the back. It is even easier to tape the squares directly onto the wall. You will get a stunning (approx. 45” x 52.”
A black and white drawing of “Sunflowers.”
This page can be used as a reference or an optional section of your display. It also serves as a coloring page.
You can see the whole picture in 42 tiles. (grid).
This page is especially helpful for students to initially see where their tile fits into the “big picture.”
Your students are called THE ARTISTS.
This page contains an empty grid.
Write the students’ names – or have them sign in the corresponding box, to showcase where their work is located on the collaboration.
*ALL PAGES CAN BE ENLARGED without loss of quality.
This page provides information on the artist as well as the painting. It also contains helpful tips and tricks to make your project, presentation and process a success.
*Please note that my intention in developing the “masterpiece line” is to provide a framework for your students to create a UNIQUE masterpiece by using color and pattern not necessarily associated with the original artwork. To recreate the original, you might want to find a copy of the color to accompany your lesson.
For classroom teachers
It’s no secret that integrating art into your subject matter can be highly effective – that collaboration facilitates cooperation, teamwork and acceptance. Your kids will love the ease of the process, the opportunity to create their own page and finally the “wow” moment of contributing to the cool, collaborative artwork. Consider creating a “class classic” for open house, conference night or even as an auction item.
The project is simple, easy, and engaging for all grades. Customize your directives to reinforce your curriculum in art history, art periods, styles, painting, color, line, movement, design, texture, pattern, perspective – and more. You’ll find the versatility of the product surpassed only by the “fun factor.” Consider the impact these artworks would have lining the walls outside your classroom, in the cafeteria, front office or at an annual school-wide art exhibit.
This unique, collaborative project is that “something special” you’ve been looking for. Thank you and have fun.

My Students absolutely loved learning about Van Gogh through his Sunflowers. Specifically, most of all they enjoyed working as a team to create their artwork. The only challenge with this was, because I each student used a different page there was no way of telling what colour they should use so I had to go through before the lesson to write in pencil the colour in each box
My students enjoy these. I purchased several and I leave them in a box for early finishers, when they are all complete, I put them together. Its a great way to keep them busy!
