Do you know that kid who loves to paint his body? Loves to roll in the mud? Loves to create with the tactile sense? That kid is my six-year-old son. He is a sensory seeker and can’t get enough of hands-on process art projects. That is why this Van Gogh Art Activity is perfect for him.
After reading the biography and consulting our trust Usborne Art Treasury (see this post on reading for more information on that book), we had our project. A Vincent Van Gogh project is a dream come true for learning.
