Inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night

Third and fourth grade artists were given the challenge to recreate their own versions of Van Gogh's Starry Night, using only a black pen.  We looked closely at several of Van Gogh's paintings, noting the texture and the brush strokes.  We talked about how we could pretend that our pens are paintbrushes and represent each brush stroke with a pen line.  Check out the great results!


  1. Love these! This translates well in pen& ink.

  2. Thanks! I am very pleased with the hard work that went into these pieces and with the final products.
