2nd Grade: Vincent van Gogh

Starry Night at Young School 

Second grade students used black tempera paint and oil pastels to create their own Starry Night.

We focused on movement and dashes of color to create a windy evening.

 First, we drew our own Starry Night and painted it with black paint.

Next, we used oil pastels to brighten the moon and stars.

The students loved making the stars' glow.

We created movement in the tree by layering different colors using the letter S.

Finally, we added details such as windows and chimneys to various buildings in the village.

The students are proud to have their artwork displayed at Young School. 

Fantastic work!
