Starry Night

This years Art Show is going to be based on "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" and Illustrators.  One of the 2nd grade projects will be based on Vincent VanGogh's, Starry Night.  After creating their version of the famous painting in their choice of medium students then created a frame to go with their piece.  Using a variety of noodles that seem to mimic the theme, lines and shapes of the Starry Night students tried to create a frame design that would compliment their art work.  They glued the noodles to a poster board mat and then the frames were spray painted gold.  I don't often use things like noodles in projects with my kids but the wagon wheels, stars and rotini seem to fit really well and after they are painted the frames give the pieces a "museum-like" feel (besides that the kids have a lot of fun working with them).
