Van Gogh, 5th Grade

This is a lesson I taught last year, but I just absolutely loved the results and thought I would post it anyway. I taught my fifth graders all about Van Gogh, which is a topic they love. They especially love the whole ear incident. Well, in this project students drew expressive trees and they either drew a "Starry Night" or a "Sunny Day." Everything was first drawn in oil pastel. Then the background painted with watercolor.

The results were wonderful.
