My Room - The Van Gogh Project

"Bedroom in Arles" is one of Van Gogh's famous paintings. Apparently he was a pretty messy guy (according to his friend Gauguin anyway) but he made sure he cleaned up his space before placing it forever on a canvas. 
Today the kids will create just the same painting. We had them each choose from which side they would like to portray their rooms and that is where they would sit and draw their sketches.

Next day they came to our studio and painted the rooms. It was quite darling to see the perspective with which they saw certain proportions or shapes.

Here are our final products together with Van Gogh's own.
