MATISSE PAPERCUTS
7th and 8th Grade

After studying Henri Matisse's life and looking at his works...both in painting and in papercutting...we observed his use of color, line, and direction. The students designed their own papercut art using only colored construction paper, glue, and scissors to construct a pleasing, balanced, free-form design with overlapping colors. The first three projects you see here have an overlapping of 6 colors each and the bottom project has only 4 overlapping colors within the design.
