1st Day of Art with Mrs. Julie

Today was our first Art class with Ms. Julie.  We learned about Henri Matisse, a french artist who is known for the use of bright colors.  As a young man he painted but later in his life he used scissors to create colorful pieces of art.  Because he was one of the first artist to use such colors, he was known as a beast.  So today we learned that, "Henri Matisse was a Beast!" and we used scissors, paper, and glue to create our own works of art!
We watched this video clip in class today! Click on the link with your child so they can watch it again  - Henri Matisse Video
