Van Gogh "Starry Night".

First and second grade observed the "Starry Night" up close and painted their own version of it.  We discussed Van Gogh as an artist and his style and how he felt at peace when he painted the "Starry Night" back in 1889.  We used a little oil pastel and tempera for this one.

Van Gogh for everyone.

This week all my classes will be learning something different about the wonderful artist named Vincent Van Gogh.  Yeah, he is the one that cut his own ear off.  Each grade level will be learning a little about art history as well as character education.  There is all kinds of things you can learn about this artist.  The displays are rented from Teacher Discovery Travel Exhibits. I will post some of the projects the students create when they are finished.
