Paragraph contest for Starry Night

After Starry Night was voted the winner of our mARTch madness tournament, students had an opportunity to write about why they thought it was the winning artwork. We had a large stack of entries with really well written paragraphs! It is so important for artists to express their ideas about their own art as well as others. Here are a few highlights: 

“It has pizzazz and makes you feel glorious.”

“I think that Starry Night won because it makes you look at a normal night in a whole new perspective.”

“The painting’s setting was very dark but Van Gogh made it bright, and even though you can’t see wind, he made me feel it with the visible and thick brush strokes.”
