Painting with Scissors 2nd and 3rd

Matisse is an artist famous for "painting with scissors". His collages are created with only cutting scraps of paper into geometric and organic shapes. He doesn't even use a pencil!!  We started by looking at this circus artwork by Matisse ----->      Can you see the crowd? the animals? the trapeze?                

Students created with own artwork cutting out geometric and organic shapes. Some choose to make a scene others just created an abstract art with only different colors and shapes. We also wrote artist statements about our collages! 2nd grade is always so excited to write about their art and share with the class. It's so heart warming to see the students excited about the deeper meaning of art!
