RDW ART PAINTING SHOWCASE

The Art students at RDW sketched “En plein air” last week! Students examined and discussed Vincent VanGogh’s Sunflower paintings, as well as reviewing the life cycle of a sunflower plant. The students then applied this knowledge as they sketched sunflowers in the courtyard that they planted themselves in the spring! Students practiced sketching quickly out-of- doors, like the plein air impressionists of the late 1800’s, to capture the essence of the image. Students later refined and completed their drawings inside. They did a beautiful job!
