Matisse Goldfish

Based on Matisse’s The Goldfish painting, this third grade class used oil pastels and watercolors to create their own version with patterned walls.  This was a great project to talk about space as an element of art and explore the resist method of watercoloring.  The varied patterns created interesting textures and paired wonderfully with the  watercolors.  Students were proud of their vibrant artwork!
