City at Night....2nd Grade

City at Night: Vincent van Gogh inspired Cityscape

Day One:
We talk about Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" and paint a van Gogh inspired background. These always turn out really beautiful. I do a tray of six cups of tempera: blue, purple, black, white, turquoise and silver.

Day Two:
We start to add buildings and windows.

Day Three:
Adding lots more windows and architectural details. Last year we added a road and cars in honor of Artober: Red Grooms.

To glue down the road, I pre-chop some gray paper...9x18 into chunks, they put a line of glue at the top of the gray and simply lay the cityscape over it so that the road attaches to the back. I make them figure this out at the demo table. 
How are we going to attach our road and not cover up our buildings?

 I demonstrated how to make a taxi and this clever artist said there are van taxis too.
