Carrie's lesson 9-10 yr olds
We had a Matisse inspired day for the last day of term (Thursday). After reading 'Matisse The King of Colour' by Laurence Anholt, we used sticky back plastic to cut out and decorate a frame, thinking about the shapes Matisse used in his later works.
The work inside the frame was a dream or good memory the children remembered, and were encouraged to have a go with traditional pen and ink. This was to create contrast to the big bold colourful frames they had made. They all experimented with this but some chose a different medium for their final drawing.
For the students that had time, they went on to make a faux stained glass window using their own design, tissue paper and black paper. They were really inventive and responded well to few boundaries with this work.
