It’s no secret….I am absolutely MAD about MATISSE. I have probably mentioned my love of Matisse in several blogs, so I will spare you all the details, but I still have to share this darling, darling project I am doing with Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Parents: this project is definitely getting hung on the fridge, somewhere, anywhere!
As you might recall, I taught the students how to create one of Matisse’s most famous designs a couple of weeks ago.
Well this week we are using those prints and creating a Still Life of a table with a vases of flowers. Everything is patterned: Henri Matisse-Style!
We cut out a table, and then we cut out a vase. We glued the vase onto the center of our “table”. I guided the students into creating a variety of Matisse designs on the vase and wall paper. We finished by adding flowers of course!
Check out our beautiful results!!
