Une classe remplie de tournesols- (CE2/CM1)

At the end of his life, Vincent Van Gogh painted a serie of paintings with sunflowers in vases, which are part of his most famous works.
During this project students learned how to use the color wheel to mix different hues and tints of a color.

There is a certain mystery surrounding the paintings.

It is believed that Van Gogh painted them to use as gifts for his friends, painters whom he had been inviting over to stay, and whom would never come.

It is also possible that there could be other paintings of sunflowers somewhere, not yet discovered ... it may well be one of these!
