1. We begin by viewing the entertaining video, Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists, Vincent Van Gogh. After the video we play a review game until the end of the class period. Our 4th grade artists have great recall of what they viewed!
2. The next class period we draw a still life with a pencil on dark colored paper. Vincent Van Gogh's, "Sunflowers", as well as other art prints and a collection of silk flowers are used for inspiration.
3. When the drawing is complete we outline what we have drawn with Elmer's glue to create a texture. The still life projects laid out flat to dry for the next art class.
