We offer adapted tools and painting activity sheet for kids to inspire endless creative possibilities for budding artists. Discover below our 5-step guide and the tools to paint in Vincent Van Gogh’s style.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh was born in 1853. Largely unknown during his lifetime, today he is recognised as one of the greatest painters of all time. Although he only lived until he was 37 years old, Van Gogh painted over 2,000 pieces during his lifetime. His art was part of the Impressionist movement and went on to inspire Fauvism.
Drawing activity in Van Gogh's style
Find all the steps and materials you need in our drawing activity sheet for kids. Download it below.
- Print the Vincent Van Gogh landscape (see below)
- Prepare your gouache discs, a fine brush and a glass of water.
- Paint the parts of the landscape that you want to colour and let your painting dry.
- Using your brush pens, add more colour to your painting. Using small strokes, apply colourful patterns. These small strokes create the effect of movement, which you can emphasise using bright and dark versions of the same colour (e.g. light and dark blue).
- Let your painting dry. Well done, it's ready to be exhibited!
