In Class 4, we have been looking at the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at his most popular pieces of art, including ‘Sunflowers’. We looked carefully at the painting and discussed the colours he had used and why we thought he had chosen those colours. We then looked at colour mixing and used a colour wheel to mix the primary colours – red, yellow and blue – to make other colours. We mixed red and blue to make purple, red and yellow to make orange and yellow and blue to make green.
We then used this to create our own version of ‘Sunflowers’ and they looked amazing! They will soon be brightening our school corridor as they are proudly displayed!
