25 Starry Night Lesson Plan (Day 1) Materials for Day 1:White construction paperPencilsDirections for Day 1:Show PowerPoint - (Examples of Van Gogh's paintings, discussion of his painting style and technique, vocabulary, etc.Pass out Scratch paper and pencils. Show / have kids pantomime the gross motor movement of drawing a big, long curving wind stroke. Repeat a few. Demonstrate what it looks like on white board. Have students draw “wind” lines on their scratch paper.Pantomime small brush strokes / hatch marks in the air. Have kids do it too. Talk about drawing dotted lines and show on the white board Have kids practice dotted lines on their scratch paper.Pantomime drawing the circular motions (gross motor – with whole arm) that will be used to create the moon and stars. Have kids imitate. Illustrate on white board and have kids practice on scratch.ErasersOil pastels -shades of purple, blue, green, yellow and orange. Provide white and black at the end only if needed.
26 Day 1 Lesson Plan Continued… Instruct students to turn their scratch paper over and sketch their wind first (top 3rd of paper).Next talk about where moon and stars will go. (Not overlapping the wind. How many? Placement? Room needed to draw concentric circles around them. Have them draw them on their scratch paper.Pass out white construction paper and have them LIGHTLY sketch their final composition (wind, moon, stars – in that order) on their new paper. Students will use these guide lines to create color strokes mimicking Van Gogh's painting style to make their Starry Night sky.Remind them the big “swoosh” motion of drawing the wind. Pass out oil pastels and instruct them to draw with color, the wind only. . Show them how to layer dark and light shades of color.Talk about concentric circles of color using dotted lines around the moon and stars. Talk about going from warmer to cooler in color. . Show them how to layer dark and light shades of color. Illustrate on the white board or your paper. Have them have them draw their moon and stars.Continue layering color and curved strokes to completely cover the white construction paper and achieve desired shades and movement

31 SilhouetteA silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subjectFrom its original graphic meaning, the term "silhouette" has been extended to describe the sight or representation of a person, object or scene that is backlit, and appears dark against a lighter background.Often created by cutting a positive shape from black paper
32 Positive & Negative Space Positive Space is the areas in a work of art that are the subjects, or areas of interest.Negative space is the space that surrounds the subjects, or areas of interest.Here are some Silhouettes showing positive and negative space…
43 Starry Night Lesson Plan (Day 2) Materials for Day 2:Scratch PaperBlack Construction Paper (cut)(same width as project but only ½ -1/3 as tall)PencilsDirections for Day 2:Show PowerPoint for Day 2 - (Vocab review, positive & negative space, silhouette, skyline)Pass out scratch paper and regular pencils. Students will practice drawing skylines using ONLY the bottom 3rd of the scratch paperWhen done practicing, pass out black pre-cut construction paper . Students will draw their skylines using ONLY the bottom 3rd of the paper.Students and volunteers will cut out their skyline.Use Glue Sticks to glue on the skyline aligning the side and bottom edges of the two papers.If time remains, use colored pencils to color (with short, hatch mark strokes) their skyline. Careful not to smudge the oil pastels.)ErasersScissorsGlue SticksColored Pencils
