Several classes in Second grade have been hard at work learning about Henri Matisse and creating art inspired by him. They looked at many of his paintings of room interiors as well as some of his still lifes. Their paintings incorporated a little of both. They were given the directions to paint a goldfish bowl in a room but they could have complete creative freedom to design their space. Some chose to paint bedrooms while others made family rooms and included aspects of their own homes. These turned out so beautifully! Here is sampling of some of the created work.
