Line and Color

For Beauty
Tomorrow I'm going to speak to my son's 4th grade class about Henri Matisse. He is one of my absolute favorite artists for use of color and subject matter with such spirit. I look forward to sharing some of his magic with the children. I have black construction paper and will have the kids use different colored scrap paper to make a picture of cut outs like Matisse did later in life.
Imagine the image above as stained glass windows in a church santcuary - or in your home!
It was a long week. Plans for the weekend?
