Have you heard of the artist Vincent Van Gogh? I was surprised to find out all the information that the 5th grade students already knew about Van Gogh: He only sold one painting in his lifetime, he was depressed, he cut off his ear, he painted "The Starry Night". Van Gogh used a lot of emotion in all of his artwork. Students choose an emotion that they would like to create along with different skies. Students could not use solid color to paint their artwork but use line instead. The colors used had to match the emotion they choose.
