Art Lesson, Starry Night

Vincent Van Gogh - Dutch, 1853-1890
Starry Night, 1889

Van Gogh's Starry Night is a perennial favorite.
Kids love the movement he so expertly realized in his sky and trees.

Sometimes short cuts let us squeeze in a very small art lesson, when little time is available. Here's a simple version for creating a Starry Night Sky.
Create a master of two swirls, moon with circle, and some various sized circles for the stars. Give each student a copy.

Kids color in the swirls, moon, and glowing stars.

Color a another piece of white paper with lots and lots of colored little lines to represent the sky background. Then cut and glue swirls, moon, and stars on the background.
