The Snail Trail
We read a picture book called the Snail Trail.  In the book a snail visits a Modern Art gallery and hunts for it's portrait.  The snail looks at several examples of modern art but none are it's portrait.  As it moves through the gallery it leaves a silver trail behind it.  Finally it finds it's portrait which was inspired by Matisse - a very famous artist who cut and ripped paper.
We explored Matisse's style creating snails of our own and we then experimented with different styles of modern art.  We created our own Snail Trail.  We think it is wonderful!  We linked it to our learnng about the Multiple Intelligences.  We were being Art Smart!  We hope to post a video of our Snail trail soon!
