Mission: Matisse

First graders have learned about three kinds of shapes- geometric (shapes with names), freeform (shapes that don’t look specifically like anything) and organic (shapes that look like something real). 

After a sorting activity and hunting for these types of shape in artworks, students have now begun to learn about Henri Matisse.

Soon, we will begin our own “drawings with scissors!”
