Make Your Own Matisse Cut-Out
"Painting with scissors"—Henri Matisse's eloquent way of describing paper cut-out art—is the practice of using simple shapes cut from colored construction paper to create a still life. In this activity, your little artist will try his hand at this unique method of creating a work of art featuring inanimate objects, such as fruit or flowers. Not only will his creation be a nod to the master, but he'll also practice identifying shapes and experimenting with colors.
