Matisse -Egyptian Curtain

The Egyptian Curtain (oil on canvas) Henri Matisse ,1948
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!!!


  1. I absolutely love this lesson. Beautiful use of pastels. I am sure the students enjoyed this!

  2. You have a really great blog! We were inspired by this Matisse project today! Looking forward to seeing what you will do this next school year!
