Matisse's "room with a view"
Second graders continued the theme of "-ishful thinking" as we examined the colorful window view paintings of Henri Matisse. We spent a few minutes imagining and visualizing window views before we dove right in to the tempera paint, reviewing tints, shades and color mixing right on our painting papers. Day 2 involved adding the oil pastel details - we learned how using different media gets different looks. Beauties!
