This Term we are learning about ART ALIVE. In Art Alive we can paint and make it look like it was painted by a famous artist. We are looking at artist people around the world. Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Van Gogh and a New Zealand artist, Danielle Hulme. The First artist I learnt about was Vincent Van Gogh. I learn his name because when we were in room 22 and we had to paint the sunflower. He painted it the twelve sunflowers in August 1888, Neue Pinakothek, Munich. Vincent Van Gogh sold one painting for $148 Million. He cut his own ear to give it to his wife and she did not like it, so Vincent had a very sore ear.
