You can use repetition of lines in a way of creating texture or pattern.

Repetition is the key!

31 Art Project – Starry Night Lesson Plan
Materials: White drawing paper, or white water color paper - 9 x12 or whatever size you are comfortable with Black Construction Paper (Could be other colors if you choose) - Cut in wide strips to layer Tempera paint (blue/white, orange/yellow) or acrylic paint if you are brave ;-) Drawing Chalk in a variety of colors Glue Scissors Pencils Erasers Directions: Day 1 - Show students examples of Van Gogh's paintings, and discuss his painting style and technique. Start on the white paper with pencils to lightly draw small circles in the top half of the paper where the stars will be in the sky and a moon if the students want. Once their stars and moon are drawn where they choose, show them how to use light dashes circling around the stars and radiating out. Students will use these guide lines to create brush strokes mimicking Van Gogh's painting style to make their Starry Night sky. This should take about one 45 min. class period. Have students cover the entire paper with paint. (Suggestion: Cover the tables beforehand with butcher paper for easy clean-up). Day 2- Have construction paper pre-cut to the width of the white paper out for students to choose colors for their project. Students choose dark color for the cypress tree and buildings in the front of the composition. Students can use plain oil or chalk pastels to draw on the construction paper to get the shape of their cypress tree, and the shape of the hills, etc. Students then glue construction paper pieces down to the white paper. Students use chalk to add texture to the tree, landscape and village
