Grade 7 paintings

As the end of the year approaches, students are finishing the last touches on their paints, drawings and sculptures.  There will only be a few more posts this year so please enjoy these 7th grade paintings.  Students studied Henri Matisse and his use of intense contrasting colors.  For their painting they first observed animal pictures and drew detailed sketches with pencil.  They them placed the animals in environments and separated the animals using warm vs. cool colors.  Mixing colors and careful brush work were important factors in this lesson as well.
