Third grade students learned about the sunflower paintings by Vincent van Gogh. I found a great site called Art History Mom that gave some great kid-friendly information about his paintings.

I love this project. They always turn out great and the kids learn a lot. We talked about painting with brushstrokes, variety, overlapping and value. Here are some of our finished paintings.
