Mrs. Nuttall's 3rd grade class learned about the collage technique of Henri Matisse. Just like Matisse, students used scissors and glue only to create these masterpieces! We practiced "drawing with scissors" rather than laying ideas out with pencil first. Click on the images below to enlarge to see some of the final results.
Check out the completed pumpkins by the Early Kindergarten class below. Click on the images to enlarge. Students created this pumpkin by mixing red and yellow paint to make orange! Then, the face was collaged with construction paper to practice using glue sticks and scissors. Finally, the background was created using watercolor paint and kwik stix!
