Who Doesn't Love Sunflowers?

Continuing with the "Fine Art" idea,
we talked about Vincent Van Gogh today. 
We looked at this and other samples of his work,
and noticed how he used small strokes of color, 
lots of swirls, and sometimes mixed his colors on the canvas. 

I brought in two vases of artificial sunflowers, 
only to find the center pieces on the tables were sunflowers! 
They were everywhere! 

I drew in some shapes for them
and they got right to it. 

Notice how she blended the colors in the vase. 

Pat just loves this! 
She had on a purple sweater today.

Another great one. 

It took awhile for Barbara to get going,
but once she did - she got right in to it. 
Look at the dots and swirls! 

It was a very small and quiet group today 
so this was just the right project. 
At one point, two of them were sleeping
and the rest were busy painting. 
No one was talking. 
Soft music was playing. 
It was magical.
