1st Grade Matisse-inspired Goldfish Bowls

Artwork by Mischa

First graders have been learning how forms can be created from basic shapes combined with a few strategically placed lines.  They looked at Henri Matisse's painting, The Goldfish, to see how Matisse created a cylindrical goldfish bowl by combining three ovals and two vertical lines.  By adding color in the form of oil pastels for details and liquid watercolors for their water and background, the first graders created a form and painting with real depth to it!
