Starry Night Mixed-Media

After ten years of teaching art and creating my own lesson plans, I have finally settled on a Starry Night Art Lesson. This lesson combines so many art techniques: double-loading, experimenting with color value, expressive painting, collage and composition as well as color theory. Hard to ask for anything more.   What is so impressive about this lesson is that every child produces a piece of art that is individual to their style and easy for all skill levels.   Perfect for grades 3-5, this art lesson uses basic art supplies (liquid tempera paint, oil pastels and paper) and guides you how to teach the art techniques to children.   Taking only two, 45-minute art classes, my third graders (you can stretch it to three if you need to) worked quietly and diligently on their paintings. At one point during the working time, the classroom teacher and I looked at each other shocked that the art room was utterly quiet. This doesn't happen often.   For a beautiful video depicting Starry Night, click here   This packet contains National Core Art Standards for grades 3-5 and Common Core Standards for Grade 3

This packet is great for grade levels: 2-5
