February Art: Starry Night Easel Paintings, Space Battles, Cats, and Yummy Food!

Our featured artist of February was Vincent van Gogh. We learned about his life, style of painting and his famous painting, "Starry Night". The kids spent 2 weeks painting on the big floor easels and learned how to mix shades and tints with their paints and how to layer.

As part of our "Children's Masterpiece Workshop" pilot program this month, the kids learned how to draw their favorite, "Yummy Food" and paint with watercolors.
