How do artists show movement?

That was the question that second grade set out to answer in their study of Vincent van Gogh. After watching a short video of his life and techniques and style, we worked to capture the movement and energy of one of our favorite physical activities. It was hard for some to move away from details and trying to color realistically, but I think that the students did an amazing job and learned about a great artist.
