Art- Vincent Van Gogh

Over a series of lessons, Year 4 have made their own masterpieces inspired by the Artist Vincent Van Gogh’s painting ‘The Starry Night’. After learning about the life of the Artist and studying his painting, we tried out his method by drawing West Earlham Junior School from the back field. We then created our starry night backgrounds using acrylic paint and learnt about primary and secondary colours. We finished our works by creating a middle ground inspired by the Norwich Skyline. For this we used water colour pencils, pastels and chalks. When our foregrounds, midgrounds and backgrounds were finished we cut them out and arranged them together. Every finished piece looks so different and all fantastic, demonstrating a thorough exploration of an inspiring Artist’s work.
