Oil and Chalk Pastel Art in Grade Four

Check out these gorgeous Van Gogh inspired sunflower pots grade four drew recently. After looking at Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings, the kids were eager to create their own. I encouraged my students to add different flowers to their pots in addition to sunflowers and to color in their art work with cool and warm colors since this is what we were talking about in the first place. The flowers, part of the pot and the table were colored in with oil pastels and the rest with chalk. My kiddos are huge fans of Vincent and I am a huge fan of their art work! 🙂
