Matisse Artist’s Study – Drawing with Scissors

The MAC class and Second Grade are working on Matisse-style collages inspired by Jeannette Winter’s wonderful book, Henri’s Scissors.  They are cutting out organic shapes and using both the positive space (the cut-outs) and the negative space (the scrap of paper outlining the shape) to achieve visual balance in the collage form.  Watch for these to appear in our downstairs Art Gallery by next week!

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