Matisse motivated mixed media fishbowls

We looked at Gold Fish painted by Henri Matisse in 1911. The students drew fish using craypas, and then watercolored fish bowls. They used tempera paint to make a patterned background to give the illusion of a room with depth. They also created a table using wallpaper. Finally, all the pieces were assembled and some students chose to add greenery, similar to Matisse’s composition.
