Artist Study- Henri Matisse

This month we studied Henri Matisse. He was an interesting artist because he not only painted, but he did a lot with paper collage and also interior decorating. We did not use a lot of resources, just Smart About Art: Drawing with Scissors and many of Matisse's art pieces. I love the Smart About Art book series because it is both fun to read and very informational too.

We made some collages with paper for our final Matisse activity. Their pictures could be either literal or abstract and here's what they came up with:

Noah's Collage

Jack's Collage (I helped with the leaves...:))
