  1. First, clear a large space! You might want to do it on a table, the kitchen floor, even the patio – you decide
  2. Now choose the masterpiece you want to create! For this tutorial, we are going to recreate Van Goughs Starry Night painting because we love it
  3. But, take a little look on the internet at famous masterpieces, get creative and choose one you like – we would love to see what you recreate!
  4. Go on a scavenger hunt around your house to find items that match the colours of the masterpiece you are creating
  5. You might have a duvet cover that is dark blue for a sky, a green sheet for fields, maybe a grey sleeping bag for a building
  6. You could even use toilet roll for clouds! The main thing to remember is to ask your adults before you use anything!
  7. Now start to create your masterpiece, looking at the shapes and the curves that are in the image that you are recreating
