Year 1 - Art Day

4th January 2023

On Art day, Year 1 focused on the French artist, Henri Matisse. The children learnt how to say his name in French. We found out when and where he was born – 1869 in France. We found out when he died and how old he was – 1954 and he was 84 years old. The children practised using Henri’s technique with warm and cool colours in a collage format. The children recreated Matisse’s Snail artwork and had a practise of doing their own minibeast artwork.
