The Starry Night would have been just another landscape if it were not for van Gogh’s swirling layered brush strokes that make the painting come alive. The Starry Night Master Kitz includes all the tools your child needs to create their own Starry Night masterpiece and learning materials to deepen their understanding of the original painting. Each Starry Night Master Kitz includes:

This is a great creation kit. The instructions are very clear, and my boys(!) just loved it.
It fits age 8+. It not only gives you the materials, but educates the user about the style of an important painter; The kit helps to experience that painting style in a fun guided way.
I can tell you that it impacted the way my son paint other pictures too.
The materials in the kit are in good quality, and you can use them for more than twice (which is the number of pages included in the kit). You can use some of the supply (like the rollers and paints) for other creations.
We used some more crayons than the ones supplied in the kit. That was not necessary.
In general, you make the painting in stages, using the instructions. You begin with two types of background, and then add details. They use stencil and stickers to help creating the backgrounds in the right place and shape. The idea with the stickers, that prevent painting some of the areas, in very nit. The only problem is that they supplied only one set of stickers; this means you need to take them off with care for additional use, as they tend to tear.
The total process takes about 2-2.5 hours to complete, we did each one in two days.
To conclude, a great kit that supplied us with educational value, as well as about 4 hours of creation activity.

Love the product! My daughter is taking art classes and this was a great way to introduce her to the Masters. The quality of the materials is first rate from the paper to the pastels. We really enjoyed reading the biography of van Gogh together( I learned a few things I did not know, too!) and it generated some discussion about artists and their works. The instructions are very well written and fun to read, also. The lasting impression was strong since we have seen other products (fabric) and imagery (cupcakes and swirled colors) that makes a connection back to The Starry Night masterpiece. A fantastic product and worth it!

My two girls (2 and 5) spent the afternoon on Starry Night. It turned out to be a beautiful piece of art that we immediately framed. What a brilliant design! We received so many compliments on it that I have started to use the kits as my "go-to gift" for birthdays. Unique, smart, artistic and easily managed by kids. And the parents have something at the end of it to hang on the wall.

After my 7 year old created his own "Starry Night," I thought two things 1) there is no way that I could ever have achieved a result like this on my own and 2) I want to do one myself!
It's clear that the creators of this kit are gifted thinkers and designers ... the process is simple (and the instructions whimsical and fun); the stencil, paint and pastels excellent quality; and the result something to treasure.
We will purchase other "kitz."

I love this "Starry Night" Master Kitz! Although this fun and creative art concept is perfect for kids I thought I would try it myself. I had a fabulous time letting my artistic side come out to create and play! The directions are easy to follow. There is just the right amount of guidance. And, I think most importantly, there is wonderful room for artistic individuality and flare. The kids may enjoy it all they want but I think take a half a dozen (or more) Mater Kitz, add some snacks, some wine, and some friends and you've got all the makings of a fun filled, creative, girls night in.......with the added bonus of having art suitable for framing. Why should the kids have all the fun?
