"Starry Night" is an artist appreciation lesson based on Vincent van Gogh's infamous Starry Night. Tessa created her interpretation by drawing with oil pastels onto blue poster board. She also cut and glued shapes from various pieces of colored cardstock for the trees and houses.
Tessa really connected with this lesson and seemed to enjoy it more than other recent lessons. She loves using oil pastels. Later in the week, she created another version of Starry Night on her own. Heck, I even got into this one and created a mini version that I hung next to our school table.
