Dear Art Educators,

Here is a link to a wonderful composition by Henri
Matisse:
La Musique - 1939:

Including one with a red hat:

Have students pose with musical instruments - some
sheet music, some patterned fabrics and some house
plants. Use oil pastels - tempera paints - markers -
whatever. Of course - play music from the time.

There are other music theme compositions by Matisse.

If anyone does a lesson like this - please share with
IAD.
