Blockhouse Bay Primary School - Artists in residence

Room 9 have been doing Cultural Art with Mrs Hutchings this term. We have been focussing on Vincent Van Gogh,Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet.

Claude Monet (1867-1926).

Claude Monet used light brush strokes in his paintings. One of his famous paintings is the water lilies. We painted our own water lilies using crayon and dye and a little bit of pastel.

Pablo Picasso ( 1881 - 1973).

Pablo Picasso signed his first contract in Paris with art dealer pere menach, who agreed to pay him 150 francs per month about us $750 today.

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

Vincent Van Gogh was born in Groot-Zundert Netherlands. Van Gogh was 27 years old when he painted his first masterpiece. Vincent’s technique was Impasto. One day he had a fight with his friend Paul. He was so mad that he cut his ear lobe off. We used orange paint for the moon, and yellow paint for the glow then we used blue for the night sky.
