Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch-born post- impressionist painter who is widely recognized as an influential figure in the history of Western art.

Vincent was born on March 30, 1853 into a middle-class Dutch family, to a country minister father and artistic mother in Groot-Zundert, Netherlands.

He had five siblings and was particularly close t o his brother, Theo, who was an art dealer.

Theo supported Vincent financially and in 1885 he created his first masterpiece, ‘Potato Eaters’. Vincent then became influenced by Japanese art and Eastern philosophy.

He also completed more than 2,100 artworks and his famous artworks included ‘Starry Night’ (painted in an asylum in France), ‘Sunflowers’, ‘Irises’ and ‘Self-Portrait’.

Vincent strongly believed in the power of creativity and its ability to connect people and emotions. To him, art was more than just a visual illustration of the world – it was a way of expressing one’s innermost feelings.

This was reflected in his work, where he used bold colors, vibrant brushstrokes and unusual compositions.

Today his legacy lives on in museums worldwide and he is regarded as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.

Skills that children acquire through the globalart program

Art is a great activity for children to learn and apply discipline. Art classes provide a fun environment and also help children develop discipline skills by enabling them to:

Follow Instructions

Children are required to follow instructions carefully in an art class when creating an artwork. This is how they develop their listen ing skills, attention to detail and capability to follow instructions.


Creating art takes time and children need to develop patience to complete an artwork, which teaches them that all good things take time and e ort.


In art classes, children are encouraged to be creative by seeing things from a di erent perspective and to think outside the box. This helps them develop imagination and prob lem-solving skills.

Focus & Concentration

The ability to focus and concentrate is a key skill when creating art. Art classes provide the opportunity for children to develop these skills, where they create art at their own pace.

I am so glad I get to embark my art journey with globalart and I will do my best to maximize my students’ skills and creativity.
