Oil Pastel Drawings After Van Gogh

Second graders learned about the post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh. Students looked at his sunflower paintings and practiced sketching their own sunflower images from observation. For the final project, they used oil pastels, blending different colors in order to achieve a more naturalistic image. Oil pastels lend themselves well to Van Gogh’s style, which is highly textured and vibrant.
