Van Gogh Flowers with Phillip Martin

Since Van Gogh is my favorite artist, I had to share him with my artists.  (And, my Dutch kids tried in vain to teach me the correct way to pronounce his name. It sounded something like "Van cough!") 

This project has bold lines and use of color.  To give the lesson an additional twist, I let the artists choose between warm or cool colors for their flowers.  It doesn't matter which colors they chose, the final results are masterpieces.

When the art is displayed, I added "Van" to everyone's name -- like Phillip Van Martin. Of course, if you have a lot of Dutch students in the class, many of them already had "Van" in their names. Nobody need to be a "Van Van".
