    Drawing Inspiration from Van Gogh and Sunflowers

    Vincent Van Gogh was deeply inspired by the beauty and symbolism of sunflowers. What did the flowers mean to him? Why did he use the colors and brush strokes in his sunflower paintings? In this session we will discover what makes these paintings unique. Through these discoveries we will look at local Michigan flowers in the garden. We will create drawings and paintings using a variety of mediums.
