Starry Night, Crows and Pumpkins

Fall is in the air and cool, starry nights are one of my favorite things about this time of year. 1st and 2nd grade painted a Van Gogh inspired picture featuring crows and pumpkins. Tempera paint was used and special attention was paid to the background. Students were encouraged to swirl blue and purple paint with their brushes, creating a textured night sky. Pumpkins were painted on a different sheet of paper and then cut and pasted on to the background as were the crows. Can’t you just feel the crisp, evening air? I love these 🙂

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
