Second Grade Matisse-style Collages

Mrs. Weber’s class and I read Jeanette Winter’s charming book, Henri’s Scissors, which details Henri Matisse’s later work as a collage artist.  Using the book and his work as inspiration, we made bold, bright collages using both our positive space cut-out shapes and our negative space “scraps” to create glorious works of art!

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
