Van Gogh - Starry Nights

I did a lot of discussion before starting this project. We talked about how you could see the different swirls and lines of paint and how the painting created a sense of movement.
The students (year 1 and 2), then used blue, yellow, white and black acrylic paint on a sheet of A4 black paper. I asked them to cover the whole piece of paper and to not worry about the 'tree' or houses in the foreground.
The next week, we went back into the painting with black oil pastel to add to the extra details. 
I am still stunned by their amazing results!
