Students take turn as young Van Goghs

Hilton Head Island International Baccalaureate Elementary School fifth-grader Quade Grisham works on his own rendition of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous painting "Starry Night" on Thursday. Students are taking advantage of a rented traveling exhibit of Vincent Van Gogh paintings to learn about the painter and emulate his impressionistic style. An empty classroom was filled with copies of Van Gogh's works and turned into a studio so art and creative writing students can seek inspiration for their own artistic efforts, said art teacher Treva Kent.
