1st Grade VanGogh's Chair
We did this as a simple 1 day project. We looked at VanGogh's bedroom and chair and I asked the students to tell me what they liked about the paintings. Kids always like the perspective, the 3d as they said that makes it look 'real' or 'like a box'. After talking for a while about Perspective the 1st graders then drew their own chair and on their chair they put something they loved (a stuffed animal). I debated about spending another day working on these just to add more detail but the kids were really excited about the 3d look and excited to bring these home so I let them go. So next week we can study someone new again.
