Shape Madness with Matisse

 

First graders learned about three groups of shapes: geometric, free-form and organic.  We looked at several works by artist Henri Matisse and found examples of each of these kind of shapes.  What do you see?
 

Then, students thought of a time or place where there may be a lot of action.  They created abstract works of art using all three types of shapes.  Click here to see our Artsonia gallery of the Matisse project.  Here are a few examples by Ava, Eliza and Maya.  Can you figure out what may be happening in these images?
