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!
