The kindergarten will learn about Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. What kinds of lines, shapes, and colors do you see? What kinds of sounds do you think you’d hear if you were in this painting? What looks like it’s moving? What looks like it’s still? Movement makes artwork look exciting.
Students will learn about Van Gogh and his painting through a virtual tour of the Museum of Modern Art. Can you explore the museum and find Starry Night? http://www.moma.org/interactives/destination/
Here’s a mesmerizing view of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. There’s an interactive animated app.
- Write your name and class on the back. Draw a wavy line to separate the land from the sky.
- Using crayons and markers, draw a moon, glowing stars, and wind in the sky. Add lines to make the sky look like it’s moving like Starry Night.
- Draw a town on the ground. What places will you add? Make sure your buildings aren’t floating in the sky.
- Add details like doors, windows, and trees. Fill in your paper.
