Study of Henri Matisse's The Goldfish
The first image shown here is Henri Matisses's "The Goldfish." 2nd graders used a grid system to translate the original painting to their own paper and used oil pastels in their study of this piece. Students were invited to make small changes to the original while trying to creating their version.
Students used a repeating pattern of colored stripes to create the illusion of three dimensional snakes.
