This is a COMPLETE LESSON PLAN with COMMON CORE 3rd grade visual arts standards included. If using for another grade, you will need to adjust the standards.
This is a 45 min to 1 hour long lesson. I highly recommend buying the book, "Katie and the Starry Night" by James Mayhew to introduce this lesson!
Provided are: Step by step instructions on how to teach students how to make their very own Starry Night paintings using water colors. Vocabulary that's necessary for students to know for this lesson. Information on Van Gogh's style of painting.
