So I love Henri Matisse and I'm not afraid to tell the world! Ha! I never get tired of sharing his work with my students and they never cease to amaze me with their compositions in his honor. I stress pattern, color, focal point, lines of movement and what I call, "Matisse Pieces". They can be any amorphic, organic, "fingery?" shape and we do a lot of practice cutting to get it right. I only got to take pic's of my 3rd school so I will post more next week.
