Another Starry Night Lesson Idea

much fun for my students. The children cut small pieces; almost
mosaic-like, from colored papers to simulate Van Gogh's brushstrokes. The backing pages

different from one another - each child found their own combination of colored
papers for their palette and cut their paper shapes in the way they saw the
brushstrokes. Sandy J
