Together we all looked at and talked about the painting Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.
The wavy night sky.
The glittering stars.
The dark buildings.
The colors used.
Then we painted what our own sky might look like. We ripped out black shapes for the kinds of buildings that might live in our world. Then we painted wooden stars glittery yellow.
Every time my daughter sees this painting by Van Gogh she gets really excited because she remembers this project. She calls it her Starry Night. She is really developing quite an appreciation for the art world and I am so proud to be her teacher.
