Henri Matisse

Matisse-Third Grade

Matisse is always loved by my students.  We start off with a power point show that celebrates his love of red, patterns, vivid paintings and cut images.  In third grade we focus on his goldfish bowl.  Before filling in the color with tempra, we spend two classes drawing (and discussing ways to show fish at different angles.)  When dry, consider outlining the shapes with crayon that is one shade darker than the shapes.
