2nd grade Matisse

2nd graders are studying the art and work of Henri Matisse. We heard the greek legend of Icarus and looked at Matisse's art of "Icarus" while relating it to what we knew of Matisse's life. We also read a book about how Matisse used cut paper shapes in his work. We created our own figure drawings trying to use correct proportions, used some cut paper for stars and created a patterned frame.
