2nd Grade Starry Night

The 2rd grade students learned about the artist Vincent Van Gogh.  We watched an animated video of “The Starry Night.” We looked at Van Gogh’s artwork and talked about how he expressed his feelings through his art.  We discussed how different colors create different moods or feelings in a painting. Van Gogh used an impasto technique, which is short, thick brushstrokes.  Students replicated Van Gogh’s style by using short, wavy lines to create their sky.  The students were able to use the cool colors to create their very own “Starry Night.”
