Starry Night artwork

To celebrate Puanga we are busy creating our own starry night scene inspired by the work of Vincent Van Gogh. Here are some of the things we found out about him:

He died in 1890  - Kingsley

He moved around a lot - Maiah - Netherlands - France - England - Belgium - South of France 

when he first started painting he painted with dark colours and then he was inspired by artists in 
France and started to use brighter colours - Raki/ Miss N 

Before his death he painted over 900 paintings - Gemma
He was 37 years old when he died - Addison

He only became a famous artist after he died - Tristan

He was Dutch which means he comes from the Netherlands - Jasmine

His paintings can sell for millions of dollars - Emily

People didn’t want his paintings at first because they were too dark - Maddison

He did a lot of self portraits - Karel

His style of painting created a new form of art called expressionism - Miss N

Below are some photos of us busy at work. Come back next week and check out our finished paintings.

    I like your starry night art work. It's starting to look really awesome. I wish I could draw like you can. Once they are all done they will look really cool.
