1st grade - Starry Night

Today we looked at an artwork by Vincent Van Gogh called The Starry Night and learned a little about Mr. Van Gogh's life. Make sure you tell your mom and dad all about what you learned! Moms and Dads, we learned about his life, not his death.

This is a quick reminder to try to stay up until just after dark tonight (it gets dark at about 8:00 p.m. right now) and go outside with your parents to look at your night sky! Look carefully at all the details you see because tomorrow we will be drawing our own night skies! Once the drawing is done, we will be using oil pastels to paint it in Mr. van Gogh's painting style!
