The next instalment of our European Union project was Holland / The Netherlands. We briefly discussed Holland as a country but focused mainly on Vincent Van Gogh, his 800 paintings in his short lifetime and his impact on the art world, in terms of his Post-Impressionist style and impasto technique.
The children mixed acrylic paints with cornflower to produce heavy, thick texturised painting which is known as impasto painting.
Monkey Girl brought a boat to life.
Panda Girl and The boy painted a copy of Van Gogh's Mulberry Tree
Ballet Girl experimented with his motion techniques.
