Art - 1 hour

Today in school, we will be doing some art work based on Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers'.

Have a go at drawing/painting your own version depending on what materials you have at home. Look carefully at the colours that are used and try to recreate them as accurately as possible in your own work. You may need to mix colours to create the desired colour.
