Artist Study: Matisse (Again)
We're back to our artist studies and revisiting the artists we've covered before since it's been several years. In January we studied Matisse.
We're still combining our artist studies with tea time, which is always fun (and yummy).
The books we used! The kids have seen several of his works in person at the Van Gogh to Rothko exhibit and The Paley Collection exhibit at Crystal Bridges.
We spent several weeks working on these cut out collages.
Their finished projects!
They used saran wrap on wet paint to get a neat watery look.
We also used these collage papers we got when we went to see a Matisse exhibit about an year and a half ago at the OKCMOA. I was surprised I could still find them easily!
Alice decided to make her own Matisse inspired collage one morning!
Because we were getting moved in to the new house at the time we went to see Matisse in His Time at the OKCMOA, I never got around to posting pictures on the blog.
They had many of his paintings.
My favorites were the collages, though!
Look at how little they look!! Now we're on to Norman Rockwell for February!
