This homeschool study includes everything you need for a hands-on approach to learning about Vincent Van Gogh.
Famous Artist Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most gifted artists that ever lived. Van Gogh only painted for a little longer than ten years, but he produced over 2,000 pieces of art!
Some of Van Gogh’s most famous and celebrated paintings are his Sunflowers. Each sunflower is different in color and placement…either in a vase or left in a field of flowers! It is said that he painted sunflowers in a yellow house that he rented in Arles, France. He rented the house for the visit of his friend, Paul Gauguin.
An Overview Of Our Vincent Van Gogh Homeschool Study
Today, our lesson is on a very famous painting that he created towards the end of his life, the iconic “Starry Night.” The night sky has his famous broken line circles that you will learn how to paint yourself! This style is now known world wide but not during the time Van Gogh was alive. At the time of his death the world was not ready to embrace his style and flamboyant use of color.
Years after he passed away, Vincent Van Gogh has become one of the most successful artists in history – his paintings commanding millions today.
