Matisse Still Life, 3rd Grade

I read a book about Henri Matisse a famous impressionist Painter from France. We viewed his still life of a goldfish bowl artwork. I employed a guided drawing technique to initially draw the scene with students. After demonstrating how to paint the glass in the fish bowl, so it slightly reflected the background, students received tempera paint. They were free to paint the still life the colors of their choosing. Check back to see the final version. Once again thanks to P. Palmer for the idea.
