'Play Recount' by Rosie and Roxy, 2017 Visual Art Leaders
We went to see the Van Gogh exhibition!
It was full of colour and beautiful doors…
For the last time, Roxy! We're not putting in that door!
We’ll see about that…
Anyway, to get to the venue (NGV) we had to catch a tram! We all had our Mykis at hand and were ready to tap on!
When we got there, we ate our snack and put our bags in the cloakroom. We were joined by the year fives who, unfortunately, had to walk there.
We got into our groups, and we each got an activity booklet. We had to look for different Van Gogh paintings and write when they were painted, the name of the painting and what season it belong to.
To get to Van Gogh, we had to go through another room with a bunch of statues.
And then we lined up to get into Van Gogh!
The Video: Oh, a you mean the one about his life and how he was really depressed?
Interesting way of putting it, but that's the one. Then we saw some Japanese prints!
Oh, those ones!
The, after a treacherous journey including beautiful doors, statues and myki cards…
It only took us half an hour, Roxy!
Shh, I'm getting to the good part! We found the massive word, ‘AUTUMN’!
It was VERY busy. Everyone charged in and started looking for the paintings. But I was looking at the paintings. Studying their beauty.
Calm down, we’ve still got a bit to go and you weren’t the only one thinking they were cool.
Enough about that! We found some cool paintings in Autumn, including ‘Shepard and his Flock’ and ‘Still Life with Apples and Pumpkins’.
It was hard to put the names on our sheets.

Then we went to Winter!
It wasn't as chilly as I expected!
Stop with the puns Roxy!... #stoproxyspuns2017
Some paintings included ‘Winter Life is Well’ and Vase with Honesty’.

Next we got to Spring. There were so many beautiful paintings but sadly we have no pictures.
Regrets. I was too busy looking at the paintings to take photos!
Finally we got to Summer, which included my favourite painting, ‘Wheatfield with Cypress’. So beautiful... Picture time!
Then our Van Gogh adventure was over!
We went to Queen Victoria Gardens eat lunch. Then we boarded the tram and went back to school!
It was so much fun, don't you think, Roxy?
Yes, it was so good! The paintings were amazing and everything was majestic! Thank-you Mrs Orr!
That's it for the Van Gogh blog!
