Van Gogh and the Elements of Art
The second graders ended the school year studying the elements of art in Van Gogh's painting The Starry Night. Students then created their own night scene using oil pastels. The project rubric required students to demonstrate the use of each element of art. Some students accomplished this by creating a replica of The Starry Night, while others came up with their own unique scenes. I love how their individuality was expressed in this project. The results were amazing!
