Show during both lessons hVan Gogh's painting Starry Night.
Tell about Vincent van Gogh. Show Starry Night. Zoom in on the painting with Arts & Culture.
The artwork students are going to make, will take two lessons.
You need for the 1st lesson:
- black construction paper
- aluminium foil
- piece of cardboard or a clay plate
- painter's tape
- tempera paint in blue and white
- cotton swab
Wrap the cardboard/clay plate with aluminum foil and tape it on the back side.
Step 1: For each pair of students there is a palette with blue and white paint. Students paint spiral shapes ons the aluminum foil with a brush and / or cotton swabs.
Stap 2: Make a print by placing a black sheet on top of your painting and pressing it.
Stap 3: Remove the black sheet and let dry.
You need for the 2nd lesson:
- oilpastels in black, grey and purple
- tempera paint in yellow and white
- black construction papier
Step 4: Draw and color the mountains with oilpastels. Draw the wavy movements in the air. The lines must run parallel to each other and also go in the same direction during a movement.
Show students that you can fade the colors by smearing the oil pastel. This way you can also make the colors darker or lighter.
Step 5: Determine where the large dark cypress should be and cut it out of black paper. (In grade 3 we gave students a shape to trace for the cypress.)
Step 7: Paint moon and stars with tempera.
Artworks are made by students of grade 3.
