Cut Outs

The first artist studied this year was Henri Matisse, the 5th grade class focused on the work produced in his later years. Matisse was a very prolific artist creating drawings, paintings, sculpture, architecture and innovated cut outs.This style of work is very simple by nature, cut paper pasted on a paper background, but also limitless in possibilities, Matisse described this process as ‘cutting into color’ or ‘painting with scissors’. Our class was very excited by the project and we had amazing results.
