This last week, the boys have been learning about the artist Henri Matisse. We started by reading “Drawing with Scissors” and also watched an excellent BBC documentary “Modern Masters Matisse“. And of course, we got stuck in by doing our own art in the style of Matisse.

The boys made Matisse inspired collages:

matisse collage - george
matisse collage - rafe

(although Gman had trouble grasping the big, bold shapes concept at first!!)

made collaged name panels (an idea from Deep Space Sparkle)

had a go at printing shapes over a collaged background (this idea from the “What’s the Big Idea?” book mentioned in this post.

And favourite of all, this wonderful Matisse-inspired dancer collage, another project idea from the excellent Deep Space Sparkle site:
