The Starry Night Project

Our next artist is Vincent Van Gogh. Again, besides using Erica's resources, we came up with some extra activities for the kiddos to help them remember some famous paintings. Here is the famous Starry Night painting that we put a bit of a spin on...

You will need: 
card stock paper
black, yellow, white, and blue paint
paint brush
plastic forks

First have the kids use paint brushes and paint the bottom part of the painting. We used a painting in our book for the kids to see the details. Then, drip a big blob of yellow paint into the right corner and smaller blobs of white and blue along the top.

Then have kids use the fork to spread it around, swirl and twirl the paint just like this.

Everyone loved the effect and there is always certain excitement with using new things to create art with!

Our next Vincent Van Gogh project is coming up very shortly.
