Studio Art: Matisse's cutouts and the Chapel of the Rosary

This week in class we studied Henri Matisse's cutout art and the Chapel of the Rosary and today we will continue creating out digital cutouts based on Matisse's work.  They example above is from Mark in 4th period and it's a perfect example because it satisfies all the : it has at least 5 different bright "fauvist" colors, it has organic shapes (along with geometric shapes), it was saves as a 8"x10" jpeg, and it also contains words that are hand created which is optional but impressive.  Tomorrow we will have a short quiz on what we learned.
