This is my attempt at Cézanne apples with a Matisse painted background done by my first graders. We stared with a oval tracer (helps with scale) to make the apples. I didn't care where they put the first circle, but by the third apple the students had to overlap one of the other apples already drawn. After the apples were drawn and the stems were added, we drew the horizon line in the background. The next couple classes were spent painting the background using the colors orange, blue, purple, and yellow (they could choose where to put the colors). The students ended the painting with choosing green or red for the apple color. We added the apple and horizon line outline, and were finally finished. Great job 1st graders!!!!
