This year in art I have had the most FUN teaching
Henri Matisse by painting over OLD WALL PAPER.
My Students began learning about his life and techniques through a visual presentation and then carried out their designs by painting a variety of wall paper book sheets- simply painting over the old designs! It was a fabulous start and inspired them in creating a few of their own designs for their work.

patterns, color and design
This is the art showcase board where I asked students to find the
6 hidden Matisse prints
that were randomly put in with student works.
