Matisse Gold Fish
This idea came from the Blog BlueMoon Palette (project here: http://bluemoonpalette.blogspot.com/search/label/goldfish) and i loved it!!! It can be done quickly as a final week project like i am doing or made more elaborate and last for a few weeks! Over all my students have done a great job doing this project mostly independently. I have been working on drawing with them an soon hope that they no longer feel they need steps to draw or to follow along with me as i draw and can just see something and draw it, but that takes time so for this one i did a simple step by step on the board and told them to draw! We also talked about foreshortening and negative space with this project and so far students from grades 1-4 have done a SUPER job!
