This week, the hero of the week in the Woog’s class is Vincent van Gogh, so we did a little Woogie Wednesday project to learn more about him. Starry Night is my favorite piece of his (and the Woog’s too!) so we took the project outside and used sidewalk chalk to recreate the work on the deck.
I remember when I was in 5th grade, we did a starry night project using oil pastels and I thought it was so fun. I remember meticulously making my swirls and dashed lines.
Ironically, I was going through the pictures on my iphone the other day and found several I took while at the Met last summer. These were pretty awesome to see:
Starry Night is on display at MoMA so maybe next time I’m up that way I’ll get a peek of it if it’s still there.
