Today we learned about the art of Henri Matisse, a painter who was very important in the style of fauve art where artists painted with wild colours. We watched the videos below about Matisse’s art, and used his style to make our own self-portraits. The students did a wonderful job of imitating Matisse’s style, and their choices of pastel colours were lovely! We now have a very colourful set of class portraits.
