2016 Project
“Art Garden: Flowers Plucked from Paintings”

Van Gogh_1    

Students will work to create a large scale flower sculpture based on the iconic style and subject matter of Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, or Henri Rousseau. Classrooms will choose one of these artists and then select an iconic still life flower painting or landscapes to inspire the detail, appearance, interpretation, and color pallet of their flower.  The selected painting should influence the appearance and outcome of the flower. Students will have to explore sturdy materials like cardboard, plastic, wood, or metal to give the flower structure and support onto which additional decorative elements can be added.

If you have a group of kids who would like to join in the parade with their own project, we welcome it!
