Carlton Viveiros Elementary School

Starry Night

Mrs. DaCosta, the Viveiros School's art teacher, had her students in grades 1 through 4 create works of art inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night.  Each class learned about Van Gogh through non-fiction literature before creating their own masterpiece using tempera paint, watercolor, and oil pastels.  Students learned that while he was alive, Van Gogh lived poorly and sold one painting his entire career.  He unfortunately never realized how influential his work would become because he only became famous after his death.  Today, his paintings are worth millions and hang in museums across the world.
