Abstract Matisse Collages November 15, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 3:03 pm

2nd graders are just finishing up an abstract collage.  Inspired by the cut-outs of Henri Matisse, students practiced cutting organic and geometric shapes.  They selected colors based on the color wheel’s warm and cool colors.  And finally, they highlighted some shapes with yarn lines.  Henri’s Scissors is a great picture book that explains how Matisse went from painter to collage artist!
