4th Grade: Art Lesson B

Sharon spent part of the morning as the art docent in Jack's class. The lesson examined how artists use color to set the mood. The class talked about the lives of Vincent Van Gogh and El Greco. Three paintings by these artists were used to illustrate the concepts: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh; The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night by Van Gogh; and View of Toledo by El Greco.

For their art project, the kids used oil crayons to re-create Van Gogh's Starry Night.
