the many faces of Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse’s paintings with his use of thick strokes and simple compositions were a good starting point for my students to learn about drawing using lines and strokes. Also, Matisse is probably one of my favorite artist so yeah, I was subliminally trying to instill his fabulous-ness into the kids’ brain. Grading these warm up images was pretty fun for me because it was great to see each student’s interpretation of Matisse’s beard.
