Matisse inspired Snowflakes

Winter seemed like the perfect theme for our artwork.  Since mother nature isn't making much snow for us this winter, we decided we would make the snow ourselves.

Matisse got us thinking............
• How would using warm or cool colors change the feeling in my artwork?
• How can I make shapes that have symmetry and radial symmetry?
• Why do I think positive and negative spaces are important in my artwork?

1st grade did a great job!  I love how everyones' looked different from the way they organized their cool colors and arranged their snowflakes to the individuality in each flake of snow ... no two are the same.
