Before we worked on our Christmas candle projects, we studied the great Vincent van Gogh. The kids LOVED hearing about this quirky painter and his eccentric habits. They also LOVED emulating his style in our Starry Night Over the Twin Cities chalk pastel pictures. We had a blast using the heavy strokes and overlapping, vibrant colors characteristic of van Gogh. Here are how they turned out. There are lots, because I was in love with the work everyone did on this one!
