Much has been said about Van Gogh's painting of his chair. It is lauded by art critics as a powerful statement by the artist on his own mental and emotional state. His chair is personalized by the placement of his personal belongings the pipe and the pouch of tobacco. His name offset to the back of the painting also leaves the viewer feeling like Van Gogh feels removed from his work and alone.
Today the Picassos recreated this piece but in a very different way! They were challenged to create a floor and back wall to set their chair against. The chairs were made out of clay and painted to make this a 3D piece. Each child designed their own floor and wall so this project is one that I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them bring to life.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
