Yesterday on April 20th, we had visual arts with Ms. Lam.
Every week, when we go to visual arts we always inquire into different types of artists lives and their paintings. This time we were inquiring into an artist named Matisse. Matisse is born in southern France and had a passion in art and painting. When he was an adult he tried to paint and his paintings had always have vibrant colors and happy thoughts. A few years later sadly Matisse caught a disease and unfortunately he had to sit on a wheelchair but he would not give up so he started to get his scissors and start to make collages. Years later he became really famous and a lot of people admire his collages. We made our own collage and we had lots of options.
I learned that an artist never gives up until he comes to an end. I understand his feelings and understand his paintings and collages.
This learning engagement was really interesting and i really enjoyed making a collage of nature.
