Day 1 Henri Matisse Immersion Rotation

Day One. RING RING! the bell rang. The class gathered in and watched PENN. After the news we discussed a French artist. Henri Matisse was born on December 31 1869, and he was one of France’s most famous artists. I have learnt that Henri’s paintings expressed his feelings. He also believed that his paintings could heal people. His style was ‘Fauvism’ which means ‘wild beast’. We had to find one of his paintings and draw it. Chardin was one of Henri Matisse most admired paintings.  Matisse like to paint Flowers, glassware, fruit and also portraits of his wife. On one of his trips he met the Impressionist artist named John Russell. He liked the way Russell used bright colors in his paintings. At the end of the day we drew a picture called ‘La Musique’ by Henri Matisse.

Stay put to read some more of my rotation immersion writing.
