3rd grade Starry Nights

The kids loved looking at Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night. Inspired by that iconic landscape, they chose a dark background paper and used craypas to create their own dramatic night skies. The next step was to create a foreground village collaging solid and pattern paper shapes onto a skinny paper strip. The foreground strip was folded and then glued down to the background paper.


  1. I love the folded paper strips you used to add dimension to this project! I use crayola construction paper crayons on dark paper too. They work great and don't create as much of a mess. I am new to blogging too. Check out my blog at

  2. Great blog! I have a similar lesson on Van Gogh on my site (artmuse67) but I love the way you made the buildings pop off the page on these!
