Starry Night Inspired Mural
First graders learned a bit about Vincent VanGogh. We made a winter themed mural based on 'Starry Night'. To make the sky kids made a printing plate of a swirly, starry night sky. We printed onto yellow paper with blue ink.
Next, we mixed up and painted lots of green colors. We tried to emulate Van Gogh by using lots of short brush strokes to make it seem like the painting is almost moving. We collaged those papers into trees.
Lastly, we practiced some figure drawing. We worked with partners, taking turns, each partner holding a pose while the other draws. We added these people to our mural.
