     About the back page:
 Grade 4 students in Ms. Webster’s class inquired into the life and works of famous Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. The young artists furthered their knowledge of color and experimented using water color paints in the signature style of van Gogh. Using colorful, expressive, short brush strokes, students cre- ated their own “Starry Night” above a photo façade of Frankfurt International School. The central idea for this unit was “inspiration comes from many sources.”
