The fifth graders learned about the art and life of Vincent Van Gogh. Although he faced difficulties throughout his life, such as emotional instability and poverty, Van Gogh persevered as a painter and created over 900 painting in his lifetime! Now he is a globally recognized artist. The students viewed Van Gogh's painting of a bedroom, and they identified what looked "strange" to them about this room. We discussed how it is important to learn the rules of one point perspective before breaking this rule (like Vincent Van Gogh). The students showed a great amount of perseverance in drawing their own bedrooms in one point perspective. The drawings featured are still in progress.
