Matisse + a Math Connection
Swope, Darcy M.
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n6 p24-25 Feb 2009
It is no wonder that works of art by Henri Matisse appeal to children, as his work has been said to "invite participation." His use of shape, color, design, and composition make his creations stand apart from others. By sharing examples of his line drawings, paintings, sculptures, and paper cutouts, children gain the sense that making art can be a way of life. This article describes how students make artworks based on Matisse's cylinders. (Contains 1 online resource.)
