Starry Night is one of an art teacher’s favorite lessons to implement, but unfortunately lessons with this complicated painting can go south quickly. Painting 11 stars in the sky for children can easily turn into a huge mess, but not with this lesson! This is a manageable lesson that involves many different materials. The stars do not get lost because of the techniques applied. There is also a very fun element of creativity when students get to decide WHERE their starry night is. I’ve seen it all, from a jungle, to the desert and even over Big Ben in London! Enjoy.
