He envisioned the stars while also painting sights of terrestrial life with his distinct, colorful brushstrokes. Oconee children learned about Vincent van Gogh during the “Starry Nights and Sunflower Days” art class at Oconee County

Library last Thursday.

Gail Karwoski from OCAF’s Women of Watercolor read the picture book “Camille and the Sunflowers,” a book about van Gogh, to attendees.

“Camille and the Sunflowers” depicts van Gogh through the eyes of a child whose family lived in the yellow house that van Gogh painted.

Karwoski emphasized the famous artists’ eccentricities throughout the book and discussed with the children how it is okay to be weird or unique.
