I love Matisse! He is my fav. artist(though Van Gogh is a close second). When Ms. Luquire and I were discussing lessons, Egyptian Curtain was brought up because the students had been working on INTERIOR & EXTERIOR spaces. She came up with this lesson that used black construction paper, construction paper crayons, and textile themed printed paper. The 1st graders LOVED this project!!! I think that they turned out AMAZING!!!
