Starry Night Landscapes

I was so inspired by this lesson from Cassie Stevens for 4th grade’s first project. We began by looking at and talking about Starry Night. We played the art crit game I See, I Think, I Wonder to talk about the artwork. Students got a kick out of these videos:

We began with a background of blue/purple/black tempera paint. Students used the tips of their paintbrushes to create the directional lines and texture from Starry Night.

We also created painted paper using intermediate colors (and some tints and shades) and paint scrapers for texture.

The painted papers were cut up and used to create the ground and woven houses.

The results are stunning, what a great way to kick off the year!
