Hearts and Trees: Mini Art Lesson

We purchased Clouds in Art Mini Unit Study from Hearts and Trees. The first aritist we learned about in this study is Vincent Van Gogh and his painting Wheat Field Under Threatening Skies. We did our artist study yesterday, but ran out of time to do the art project. You can read about our artist study HERE.

In this post I want to share with you our art project. We were to create a picture with threatening clouds in the style of the painting we studied above. Here are some picture from today's art project. Timmy struggled with the idea of what to do at first, but he did a wonderful job. *Ü* They all did a wonderful job. *Ü*





















And this one is mine:

Your kids did a great job! We bought this mini unit study and did the same picture this week. In hindsight I should have sat with my girls to do it. They produced nice pictures but weren't as "into" it as I had hoped. I'm sure that you doing it with your kids made it more fun for them.

WOW!!!! These are fabulous. Even before I read what your project was about, I was thinking that these were quite VanGogh-like. Just spectacular...
