My students enjoy this collage version of Van Gogh's Starry Night, because they love making their own confetti to represent the swirly movement in the sky.
To make the confetti we first cut many skinny vertical cuts into about 3 pieces of paper at once. These vertical cuts make the paper seem like "fringe" on the bottom. Then make horizontal cuts across the fringe, and voila, confetti falls to the table. It's best to have a cup or piece of paper under your cutting so you can corral the confetti for when it's time to drop it on your glue.
These examples were done by 3rd graders and high school students.
Thank you San Gabriel Elementary 3rd grade artists, and No. County christian High School artists!!
