|Van gogh's Starry Night|
We followed the same technique that the 8th graders did for their flower artwork; sketch in pencil, color in with oil pastels, add texture with paint. I let them use some metallic paint, too, which they loved.
They had the option of recreating the original or putting their own spin on it. As long as the had some sort of large object in the foreground, movement in their sky, and a low landscape, they were free to get as creative as they wanted to.
I love the finished pictures and think the artists should be so proud! Here are a few to look at:
