Year 7 Art students visit the Van Gogh Exhibition


On Friday 16th of June, Years 7SD and 7RE went to the Vincent Van Gogh exhibition at the NGV.  We attended a talk with an NGV teacher that taught us many interesting facts about the artist and his artwork.  This helped us to enjoy the exhibition as we had a little more knowledge about Van Gogh.



After the talk, we went to Southbank to have lunch; this was a good opportunity to discuss what we had just learnt about Van Gogh.  We enjoyed eating our lunch by the Yarra River in the winter sun.  We then returned to the NGV to enter the gallery to see the largest collection of Van Gogh artworks to ever travel to Australia.


We explored the many different Van Gogh paintings, which were arranged in sections that were divided into the four seasons.  I particularly liked the season of summer, as the paintings were bright and colourful.  We learnt that Van Gogh loved to paint about the seasons and especially liked summer.


We completed our worksheet that helped us evaluate our experience at the gallery. We then headed home on the tram.  Attending the Van Gogh exhibition was a great experience and I really enjoyed learning about Van Gogh’s life and seeing his amazing paintings.
