Matisse Masterpieces

We have been busy little beavers today, using many Habits of Mind to create some fantastic art. We have been learning about Henri Matisse, and how he loved colour and shape. We found it hard to believe that he died over 50 years ago - even before Miss Revell was born! (That seemed to draw a great deal of attention) We were inspired to create original work that looked similar to Matisse's collages, and the exemplar that Miss Revell had knocked up.

We focused on four habits in particular - Creating, Imagining and Innovating, Managing Impulsivity, Taking a Responsible Risk and Striving for Accuracy. Do you think that we have been successful in using these Habits? Marvin does.
