Starry Van Gogh

This year, a new class of 8th grade students have been working on studying a different artist every few weeks using reading, writing and math concepts.  We studied Van Gogh and the Starry Night recently.  Students enlarged their own version using a grid and 1:2 ratio and finished it in marker, chalk pastels, or oil pastels.  They then worked in small groups to create a song about Van Gogh using Twenty One Pilot's song Heathens and Don McLean's Vincent as inspiration. Students then turned their song lyrics into a "font poem" creating a visual display for their work.  

I added this group enlargement from a few years ago to fill the display.
