If your students love to paint, these delightful mixed media projects are perfect for your art lesson library.
I love using bold, bright colors of tempera paint splashed on paper. These 3 art lessons inspired by the artist, Henri Matisse are simple, successful and fun.
Project One, Room with Patterns, is inspired by Matisse's beautiful paintings of interior rooms containing patterned walls, tables containing bowls of fruit and vases with flowers.
Project Two, Plate with Fruit, focuses on the beauty of a plate of fruit. Totally adorable and a successful project for all.
Project Three, Still Life Vase with Flowers and Fruit, is a pattern on pattern project. This project is an explosion of color. Students create a vase containing flowers and a cluster of fruit.
These projects cover grades K-4, but truly anyone
will love creating these masterpieces.
These lessons provide a collaboration between organic and geometric shapes, elements of art, various media, composition and color along with art history.
