Matisse Inspired Figures

During their art lesson in November, the 3rd and 4th grade worked on an Henri Matisse inspired picture. Using templates to cut out their body parts, the students had great fun arranging the pieces in different poses. Challenge your student to see if they can duplicate their pose! Get stretching 3rd and 4th grade 🙂

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
