Amazingly two Van Gogh paintings that have been missing since 2002 have been recovered. They are valued at $30 million. I’m sure the Van Gogh Museum never thought they would be found. Read about it here. And you can see the press release that the Van Gogh Museum released here. Always good news to have beautiful art by amazing painters recovered.

We wrapped up this session of Art Camp with a lovely, large painting of Van Gogh’s “Vase with Carnation and other Flowers”, originally painted in 1886. This is one you don’t see very often but it’s lovely and the kids did an outstanding job on this one.
Great work everyone. I hope to see you at this summer’s final session of Art Camp for ages 8-12 on July 25-28. More information here.
We paint Van Gogh’s Wheatfield with Crows yesterday at Art Camp. It is thought to be one of his last paintings. The kids did an excellent job on it as they learned about Post-impressionism and Van Gogh’s short, choppy strokes. Great work everyone! Art Camp continues today…..with Warhol!
Yesterday the Art Campers (ages 5-7) painted like Vincent Van Gogh. And what a terrific job they did.
Nice work everyone.
We had the best time at the Famous Painters Party last night at The Studio painting Van Gogh’s Yellow Chair. Everyone did a fabulous job working on their 16″ x 20″ canvas. They look so good! We are going to do the companion piece “Gauguin’s Chair” at the May 24th session.
If you do nothing else today you HAVE to watch this film trailer. I’ve been seeing a short video on Facebook the last few days promoting a new film about Vincent Van Gogh. It is and animated film about his life being made entirely using paintings in his swirling-choppy style and based on his letters. It is AMAZING!
