This week in Under the Influence, we learned about Vincent Van Gogh. In the past, we've done Starry Night, and I loved that project , but this time I wanted to try something different. So, I went with Bedroom at Arles. The students mapped out their own bedrooms in pencil, then added color with colored pencil. If they wanted, they could add even more color with pastels. I also said they could add any colors and or objects to make it their "fantasy" bedroom. I enjoyed seeing the whole process, and the results are great.
You might notice that my daughter Sam is in her pjs. She didn't finish her picture during classtime, but right when we got home, she took out the colored pencils and completed her work. Also, when I took Aidan's photo, he didn't want to hold his picture, but it is one of the ones below. And the picture of him by himself is just so darn cute. : )
