Grade 5 – Starry Night

The plan was to introduce the Grade 5 group to Van Gogh and then do an interpretation of Starry night, Grade 5 style. I was not aware that the savvy camps bay learners had done a similar project in grade 2. Van Gogh is such an interesting character that the learners were still interested however. I was able to take them a little deeper into Van Gogh’s post impressionist art form as well as his history (They all wanted to hear the story about the ear, which I was happy to tell…Though a slightly sanitized version).

Here are a few of their artworks. I only have a few though there were many very beautiful ones!

An interesting take on Starry night, where the cyprus tree has morphed into a blazing fire! I think that Vincent himself might have appreciated this interpretation.
