VVG Cotton Ball and Q Tip painting and Starry Night

Found this idea on a fellow bloggers sight and had to try it out!!! My 4th and 5th graders used only cotton balls and q tips to paint Vincent Van Gogh's Wheat Field with Cypresses... the results are really neat considering what i gave them to work with.

VVG Starry Night
2nd and 3rd grade worked on VVG's Starry Night by re-drawing it using construction paper crayons.  We looked at his use of vivid brush strokes and used the crayons to try and imitate.  A fun way to learn about one of my all time favorite painting! and one that most of the students had seen or heard of before.
