The piece comprises of 30 individual tiles (one produced by each child in the class) and each depicting a section of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. It is a multi-media piece in which the children (using pencil, chalk / oil pastel and paint) have attempted to emulate the style of Van Gogh. The children also incorporated a wish of their own into their work, either in bold fashion – painted or written clearly in oil pastel, or more discreetly – written small in pencil in a corner of their work. As it turned out, a number of the children’s wishes had real depth resulting in it becoming not only a visually striking piece but a moving and emotive one as well.
