Marbled Paper Starry Night

3rd grade viewed "Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh. Inspired by the dark, cool colors and his use of swirls, we created a piece of marbled paper to use in our Starry Night collage.

We started by dripping cool colored paints on a tray of shaving cream. Then we used a wooden stick to swirl the colors.

After the colors were swirled, we pressed our paper into the shaving cream. We used the wooden stick to scrap off the extra.

Once our paper was dry again, we used black paper to cut out a silhouette of a city or mountain scene.

Last, we added the stars and moon using q-tips and white and yellow paint. Gorgeous results!
