★ No Printing Necessary!

★ Google Digital version to use with Google Classroom.

★ Artist Biography Slide features an original realistic image of the artist.

★ Graphic Elements to create their own Starry Night Scene.

★ Every student completes the entire project.

★ Highly recommended that students share their final Starry Night Scene to a class website or to social media. Use an Instagram tag so everyone can see each other's work.

Share the link through your school's digital platform, otherwise sharing may be blocked from outside the district and students will not be able to access the clues and documents.

This project aligns with visual art, visual literacy, informational texts, biography research, nonfiction, and art history.

I love seeing student artwork! Share yours with me!
