As this Starry Night online workshop took place in the middle of the Lockdown for Covid-19, the theme felt extra poignant to me - Van Gogh painted his masterpiece whilst in isolation during his stay in hospital during the penultimate year of his life. The painting was the view from his hospital room, painted during the day from memory; This opened up lots of opportunity for discussion and emotions around lockdown and isolation.
During the session we discussed our appreciation for our outside space, freedom and nature. Every child addressed this workshop in their own unique way, some painting what they could see out of their own windows and some imaging a fantasy world outside.
Here are just some of the incredible art works created.
