Many of our first and second grade artists have been learning about French artists--Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne. After discussions on two still life works by these Master artists, students observed a still life set-up of apples in our art room. Students used their "artists eyes" to draw the apples and then they finished their work in chalk pastels or tempera paint.
