Starry Night with a Twist

The Grade 2/3 class learned all about Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry night this month and then made their own versions with a twist. We learned about the word “impasto”, a style of painting in texture strokes creating the illusion of movement in our nocturnal sky. They mixed this up with a skyline of buildings reminiscent of Paul Klee’s cubist style. You can spot the CN tower and Ripley’s Aquarium in some of the paintings. I love how this mash-up, created by the inspiration of two famous artists, turned out. Great job Grade 2/3’s!

I also want to thank the CGS Foundation for the new art library that we now have in our art room. Check out the picture below of our students enjoying some art history!
