Hornet Class Art 4 – Vincent van Gogh

In the next part of their study of self portraits, Hornet Class looked at the work of Vincent van Gogh, and in particular his use of colour. van Gogh painted over 40 self portraits in a five year period of the late 1880s, right up until his untimely death. We looked a his later portraits which were characterised by shorter brush strokes. Using pastels rather than paint, the children looked carefully at the lights and darks of their own faces and produced some really lovely and considered portraits. The whole class continue to impress. (All the adults in class had a go at this activity, their works are included here as well.)
