Color and Light
We read another book about Henri Matisse. This one was about the stained class windows that he made for a Chapel in France. It talked about how when the sun hit the windows it was as if he was painting with light.
With the help of our light projector and colored shapes we were able to do our own version of "painting with light".
We used brightly colored chalk pastels to trace and color the shapes we projected on the wall.
We added to this project by coloring around the shapes with a different color and then giving the whole piece a "dreamy" effect by smearing the chalk.
This project gave us the opportunity to talk about colors and shapes. It also introduced the light projector to our new friends.
