2nd graders learned all about the artist Matisse.
They used their imaginations to look at and describe The Sorrows of the King:
They noticed that Matisse drew with scissors instead of pencils or crayons and he included positive and negative space, and geometric and organic shapes in his artwork. Students had fun folding and cutting their paper and creating a collage with colorful scraps.
They used their imaginations to come up with an artist’s statement to go along with their artwork.
