Art and Sunflowers

8-11 Yr Olds

If you enjoy art, flowers and being creative, this is the class for you! First, we’ll use science to examine the structure of the sunflower, plant sunflower seeds and taste sunflower sprouts. Then, after learning about the famous Dutch artist, Vincent Van Gogh, and his impressionistic color “gymnastics”, participants will use oil pastels to recreate Van Gogh’s famous sunflower picture! The completed sunflower “re-creation” will be mounted prior to being sent home.
