Here's a lovely Van Gogh inspired winter art lesson from the fabulous Painted Paper.
I pre-traced a large circle on heavy white 9 x 12" paper. Grade 4-6 students looked at Van Gogh's "Starry Night" painting and drew their own village. They added swirls in the sky to mimic his style.
They also drew their own base for the snow globe.
Then they outlined everything with a fine tip Sharpie.
And coloured in their village using coloured pencils.
They painted their sky using watercolours.
We added gold glitter to the moon and stars for some holiday razzle dazzle!
Finally, they cut out their snow globe and glued it onto blue construction paper.
Some finished artworks!
