Ms Curtin’s class have been studying the artists Picasso and Matisse. We read the funny story ‘When Pigasso Met Mootisse’ . The story was about two artistic animals that did not like the way the other painter painted their paintings.
We found out that the story was about two real life artists Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse that did not get on because each of them thought that they had the better style of painting. We spent a few weeks studying each artist and had a go at painting in each of their styles of painting. We found out lots of very interesting information about each artist. Did you know that Picasso had a very long name? It was Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Clito Ruiz y Picasso Ruiz Picasso! Matisse almost always used the same things in his pictures – a window, a dog, a vase and some flowers. He made them look different by adding crazy patterns.
We made a display of our masterpieces and had a heated discussion over which artist we preferred.
