L.O – To produce a piece of artwork in the style of a chosen artist.
Today, we are going to continue our work focusing on the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. Hopefully, you all completed the fact file from last weeks lesson and are now a little more familiar with the artist and the life he led.
Vincent Van Gogh painted many very famous paintings, unfortunately he only ever sold one whilst he was alive.  Starry Night, is one of his most famous creations, I think you can see why!
Watch the tutorial below, in order to create your own interpretation.

In the video a technique known as crayon resist is used, however if you do not have the materials available, use what you can. The original painting would have been oil paints on canvas. Follow the simple steps and you will produce some wonderful work.
Don’t forget to send your pictures, I can’t wait to see them. Have fun and be creative!
