This week Blwyddyn 1 have been looking at and thinking about the art work ‘The Snail’ by Henri Matisse. 

We have been thinking about his painting and how he created it.  We became ‘colour creators’ and mixed our own shades of paint (just like Matisse did.) We then had a shock when we were told we could rip up our ‘colour creation’ paintings! From the pieces we created our own swirly painting collage- in the style of Matisse. 

We also explored making swirls in lots of different media – paint, chalk, with the sculpture stones and other natural materials and with all sorts of other classroom objects. What fun we had! We also observed carefully the swirls on the shells of Maelon and Dwynwen, our classroom snails. 

I wonder what else the artist Henri Matisse created?
