Product Description
Welcome to the SMocKroom and the first step towards developing your students' observational, descriptive and art making skills, through a rigorous and engaging curriculum. These complete art units are designed within a comprehensive instructional sequence, taking your students from simply looking at art to targeting specific characteristics of art works and artists by using visual thinking strategies, Venn diagrams, brainstorming, sketching and retelling. Students not only build their background knowledge about art but also use skills targeted within the Common Core State Standards for ELA, by using similar language and skills, such as critical thinking and close reading of informational text. There is no better way to grow artists than with a holistic approach to visual arts. This lesson focuses on the art of Henri Matisse and connects to the students' understanding of facial proportions and patterning through the investigation and practice of creating a self portrait.

This art lesson is based on the art and life of Henri Matisse, combining his elaborate design patterns and his representational contour line drawing portraits.

This document offers art teachers a guided resource of images, informational text, and questions to facilitate students' investigation of Henri Matisse, using visual thinking strategies and students' developmental processes through 'practice' and brainstorming activities.

The duration of the lesson is dependent of your individual schedule. My students have art 1 hour, once a week. This lesson, for my students, was about 6-7 hours in length or about 2 months. It seems long but the various components of the art unit lended to positive student learning and student growth.
