Following the lesson outlined here, we studied the painting style of Vincent van Gogh. We learned about impressionism and how van Gogh was famous for his broad, swirling brushstrokes. We looked at his paintings in a library book. The girls attempted to paint in his style, trying their best to make sweeping brush strokes. M actually used one of his paintings as the inspiration for her painting.
