Paint Like Matisse!

"Creativity takes courage." ~ Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse was a French artist who worked in many different types of media, including printing, sculpting, painting, and collage. He is best known for his colorful, expressive paintings - as well as his whimsical "painting with scissors" techniques that he used in his later years while confined to a wheelchair.

I love each of the individual interpretations of this painting, including the varied shapes of the bowl, the furnishings, the patterns, the backgrounds, and most of all, the students' wonderful use of color!
