The K/1 class did some Matisse cutouts. I talked to them about Matisse, we looked at his work and learned a little about his life.

I demonstrated how to cut out spirals and how to draw shapes on their paper but then to glue them so that no pencil marks showed.

We also talked about using the scraps and leftover cuts and how just cutting off a corner of their scrap or in half made it an entirely new shape.

MOMA has a great site with information about Matisse’s cutouts.
