Artist of the Month – February

By | All School News
February’s Artist of the Month is Vincent Van Gogh, the world famous artist best known for Sunflowers and his collection of self portraits (painting more than 30 over his lifetime).
Some of his work, including Sunflowers, Long Grass with Butterflies and Van Gogh’s Chair can be viewed at the National Gallery. Much of his work can also be seen at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Thank you for the excellent Camille Pissarro pictures that some of your children painted at home in January. It would be great to receive some Van Gogh inspired pictures that we can display at school this month!
