We used The Usborne ART Treasury for inspiration. First we read about The Starry Night painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1889. Did you know he painted almost nine hundred paintings over a nine year period ? Next we read a short paragraph about van Gogh and then we followed a step by step to make our own painting.
|First we sketched on the canvas.|
|We used acrylic paint and pva mixed for thicker paint.|
|We used plastic forks to make patterns in the paint.|
