> Hi all,
> I just added a gorgeous collection of paintings by my second
> graders. I showed them a Power Point of still life paintings by a wide
> variety of artists. While we looked at the wide variety of subject
> matter, we focused on the line and pattern of Matisse still life
> paintings, and I introduced them to the word "painterly" and taught them
> to double load their brushes to create textures and blend colors.
> TO see them, the easiest way is to go to our www.sjs.org website, click
> on the student button. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click on
> the media gallery. They are titled "Class Two Still Life Paintings from
> Imagination" There are some amazing paintings here, in my most humble
> opinion. Enjoy!
