Mrs. Bahnks' class just finished learning about Vincent Van Gogh. They took a look at his artwork - especially Starry Night - and picked out different lines they saw in the paintings. They then were able to create their own starry night artwork. The first day of the project was creating a starry night sky using a tempera paint. Students were encouraged to use good Line Quality. <--click on this to visit the Smart Art vocabulary page
After our sky paintings were dry, students used construction paper and oil pastels to create a landscape with a tree for their starry night picture. They were able to show creativity by developing whatever kind of ground they wanted to have. We had some farm landscapes, some seascapes, many cityscapes, and even a few graveyards!
I will post some finished pictures soon!
Monday is a great day for me - it means I get to come see all of my Willard friends!
