Inspired Summer Self Portraits

With our summer break just a few days away (actually twelve, but who's counting :) our thoughts and art have turned to summer activities. Second graders looked at the works of David Hockney and third graders studied Henri Matisse for style inspiration in these self portraits. Special thanks to Mrs. Carter from High Shoals Elementary for sharing this Hockney project.

Third graders learned of Henri Matisse's use of color and pattern to complete their self portraits. Each portrait included a table with at least one object that represented a special hobby or interest of the artist.  One student shared that she had a question about Matisse on Trivia Crack and knew the answer because of our study of his life and works. See! Studying art does pay off :)
