Starry Night ~ ASD Class

Today we enjoyed a process art lesson inspired by Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting. First, we looked at the beautiful image for inspiration. We discussed the different shades of blue and the swirling, whirling clouds and moon. Next, we set up our foil canvasses by covering 6 pieces of cardboard in tinfoil. Then, we squirted blue, white and yellow paint onto our foil canvasses and began painting! Some of us used our fingers and some of used paintbrushes. We all loved painting on the slippery, reflective surface, as well as the crunchy sound it made.

Eco Friendly Newspaper Bags

Take a look at our Eco friendly bags. We researched gift bags and discovered that the majority of them are made in China. We wanted to reduce the air/land and sea miles used and thereby reduce our carbon footprint by making bags of our own using old newspapers.
