If your students love to paint these delightful projects are perfect for your art lesson library.
I love using bold bright colors of tempera paint splashed on paper with big brushstrokes. These 2 art lessons, inspired by the artist, Henri Matisse are simple, successful and fun.
Project One - creates Boats of the Riviera and is inspired by the painting Les Voiliers. 1906
Project Two - creates large painted paper cut fish which is displayed in an underwater habitat.
Both lessons provide a collaboration between organic shapes, elements of art, composition and color along with art history.
Included in this 15-page digital lesson plan:
Step by Step full-color photo tutorials for each lesson
Art historical background about Matisse
Supplies needed for both projects
National Core Art Standards checklist
Each project requires 1-2, 40-minute art sessions depending on grade level.
