Vincent Van Gogh
"Starry Night"
A historical report on famous artist, Van Gogh.
By Spencer B.
Early Years

After Years
Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands. His first name was Vincent (which was a common name in his family). As a young child he loved to draw! He always knew he wanted to be an artist, but he did not begin painting till his late twenties. Although he was a great artist,
he never married or had kids.
"My youth was gloomy and cold and sterile."
-Van Gogh
Famous Art
Van Gogh is most famous for paintings!
He did lots of watercolor and oil! Two of his most famous paintings are "Bedroom in Arles" and "Vase with Twelve Sunflowers". When I was a kid, I loved Van Gogh's art! These are my two favorite paintings!
Art Museums
Today, you can see many of Van Gogh's art! One popular place is the Van Gogh Museum, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands! They have lots of his work there! You can also find some at the the New York Museum of Modern Art and at the Detroit Institute of Art (DIA)!
When he Worked
Van Gogh painted during the Impressionist period which was popular in the 1870s and 1880s. This art movement began with a group of Paris-based artists. Van Gogh's famous painting series of sunflowers is an example of his impressionist artwork. The Dutch believed that the sunflower was a symbol of devotion and loyalty. He was an important painter at that time because he would do a series of paintings, not just one.
Van Gogh's Art Impact
Van Gogh's art had great impact on 20th century art. His art had odd beauty, great emotion, and bold color. His paintings helped teach others of the significance of symbolism. Many of the modern day art (pop art) has bright color like his work.
How Art Impacts Us
Art is a way of expressing ourselves. We can use this to show how we feel, what we want, or just to show our imagination at work. Looking at art helps us to appreciate visually all the beauty around us. I love art! I love art for all of those reasons! Art is the best!

My View

Van Gogh
At the DIA!
I love Van Gogh's art! This project was really fun! I learned a lot about Van Gogh, and his art! He used bright bold colors that really appeal to me. His art is an inspiration to me. I might even be an artist too!
Design Cycle
Since Van Gogh is my favorite artist, I was inspired to learn more about this famous person! I searched many web sites to gather information.
I started to layout my design and tested how it looked (Look closely at my entire project!).
I reviewed my project many times to make sure spelling, grammar and punctuation were correct. I did a final review on my project to make sure it was perfect!
I first reviewed the Prezi tutorial to learn about this new program. Then, I determined my layout. After that, I added important information and pictures to my project. Finally my project was complete!
