Join us to explore the beauty of sunflowers. Student artists will examine Vincent van Gogh’s famous paintings and hear a Greek myth about Apollo and how the flower came to be. We will make life size collages, draw, paint, print, and more. It’s always wonderful to share our experiences and accomplishments, so on the last day of class we will celebrate with an art exhibition for family and friends.
