Students will examine the shapes found in the work of artists Ashley Mary and Henri Matisse and paint shapes and marks inspired by them on fabric. They will attach the fabric to embroidery hoops and practice stitches using yarn.

Discuss where people would encounter Matisse's artwork during his lifetime (e.g., galleries, museums, books, etc.).
Discuss where people today encounter Ashley Mary's artwork (e.g., online, wearable and usable products).
Compare and contrast the shapes used by both artists.
