To know who Vincent Van Gogh is and the colours he used.

Watch this video – is 10 mins long so stop when needed or can skip the guessing games. 


Activity : Study the colours used in the light painting and try to use crayons, pencils, felts, pastels or paint and try and match the colours in each picture. Make marks (swabs) of the colours that you can see e.g oranges, yellows, light brown. On the other side, study the dark colours he uses and put those colour swabs on that side. 


Extra challenge - Can you then create a picture using ONLY these colour palates?
