Starry Night #4

                  This method we applied tempera paint to paper with cups.
We used the bottom of the cups.
Initially the children pressed the painted cup bottom around their paper.
Then I encouraged them to twist and smear the cup to see what would happen.
We layered the colours and watched them blend.
Tomorrow will be our final day of focusing on Van Gogh's Starry Night.
Today while creating a parent suggested we look at one of Monet's pieces.
It has a bridge with lilies.
I'll have to try to find it.
I really appreciate when our parents take part in the planning.

  1. Monet's painting would work wonderfully with this technique.
