Meerkats - Painting With Scissors!
30 January 2022 (by Mr Scott (meerkats))
We made paper collages inspired by Matisse.
This week we were learning about the artist Henri Matisse and how he began making paper collages with scissors and paper when he could no longer paint. Mrs Hilton helped us make these fantastic Matisse-inspired collages of colourful overlapping shapes. Many merits and dojos were awarded for our fantastic artwork. Mrs H almost got a merit until we realised her unnamed artwork wasn't completed by a pupil! Now we know how to make a simple collage, we will be developing our skills to make a Japan-inspired collage.
