    Welcome to Mr. Herzog's First Grade Online Lessons:



    The Henri Matisse Fish Bowl:

    In this lesson First Grade will be drawing a fish bowl found in a Henri Matisse painting.  Before we start let's watch this video about Henri Matisse:

     Art with Mati & Dada-Henri Mattise



      Please read through instructions before you begin:

    • Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
    • Hold the paper vertically.
    • Draw a large oval in the center of the paper.
    • Draw a large circle underneath and connected the oval.
    • Draw water (shape, see example ) inside the circle.
    • Draw 1-3 fish inside water facing in various directions.
    • Draw a plant or pebbles at bottom of water.
    • Draw wallpaper-patterned shapes to create a background design (see example).
    • Draw tablecloth-patterned shapes to create a tablecloth design (see example).
    • Shape Examples: 
      • squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, diamonds, ovals, stars, and hearts.
    • Once you are done drawing your fish bowl with fish, color them in completely using various colors.
    • You may color the drawing in crayon, magic markers, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
    • Use as many colors as you like for your drawing.
    • I can't wait to see the beautiful Henri Matisse Fish Bowl!


    Remember: once you are finished with your artwork take a picture of it and email it to rherzog@wtps.org. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
