This lesson is one of my favorites for many reasons. Each piece of artwork turns out very different, even with the same directions. Students have so much fun adding real textures like sunflower seeds and tissue paper to the artwork.  This lesson also addresses so many important fine motor skills such as cutting, gluing, tearing, and writing. You won’t be disappointed trying this lesson! There are so many versions of Van Gogh Sunflower lessons out there, but with this unique take, you will feel like it’s the first time you’ve seen or done this lesson or one like it.
