Vincent Van Gogh

"There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." -Vincent Van Gogh

For a picture study, we colored these wonderful coloring pages just like Van Gogh did...or at least in ways our limited pen colors would allow. I read from Van Gogh and friends and Camille and the Sunflowers to tell us more about each painting and the artist we are learning about Van Gogh himself.

"The bed room" colored by Zak

"Self Portrait" colored by Zak

"Sunflowers in a brown Vase" colored by Max

"Irisis" colored by T.J.

Books and resources we used:
The Impressionists Coloring book by Andy Nelson
Artist Bio Sheet
Dover Art Stickers

UPDATE 12 DEC 2012: I put many of our ideas for Van Gogh in an Artist Study Helper for Van Gogh you can buy it here for less than $5.
