Friday's Art Adventure

Last Friday we went to Mrs W and did some art alongside her children. 

Completed picture

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.
It was quite difficult getting the children to paint thickly on the canvas as we have spent the last few weeks tutoring them to paint thinly for other projects. I had to assist Sir N in a few spots on his painting.



  1. That artwork looks fabulous!
    Great job. :)

  2. Thank you Alecat :) The masterpiece is now hanging in the play house and has pride of place on the wall!
