4th grade Fauves
The fourth graders agreed with Henri Matisse that, perhaps, being called a "wild beast" wasn't such a bad thing after all. The art movement Matisse and Andre Derain created in 1904, Fauvism, was the inspiration for our wildly-colorful artworks based on endangered animals. We discussed many characteristics of Fauvism and I hope you notice some in these awesome paintings (thick black lines, heavy use of complementary colors...). Great Job!
