This is an introduction to a study on Van Gogh You can have photocopied his painting Starry Starry Night in black and white only and give a copy each to the children. However, one group is allowed to use coloured pencils, one group used crayons, another pastels, and another texta colours textas are markers. After the children have coloured them as they imagine they should look, they share their reasons for their use of colour, texture, etc. Only then do they see the painting as Van Gogh did it. This excites the children to find out more.
