Van Gogh’s cave paintings


In this Art/Dt/history project we first learned about Van Gogh, his life and how he used colour to portray emotion. We experimented with copying his style and created a background for a cave that was inspired by his work. We then learned about cave paintings and how early people used them to communicate. We practised our own versions of cave paintings and then learned how to make paint in the way that stone age people did. Finally, we created a large colourful background influence by Van Gogh’s work and painted a stone age motif over the top using our stone age paints.
