Georgetown second grade artists have been exploring the work of French artist Henri Matisse. They loved his beautiful painting of The Goldfish Bowl, and were excited to create a similar piece using Matisse’s cut paper collage style.

Third Grade Matisse Collages

Kindergarten Alphabet Soup
Third grade artists have been learning about Henri Matisse this week. They discovered that Matisse “drew with his scissors” as he made his cut paper collages. They were intrigued to learn about the way Matisse created an eye-path for the viewer to follow in his “Beasts of the Sea” collage – and now we are looking for an artist eye-path in every work of art that we see!
Today 3rd grade began “drawing with scissors” to create their own cut-paper collages – a Matisse inspired figure with a border filled with organic shapes – and of course, an eye path!
