Fall into Matisse! This cheerful fall pumpkin project is inspired by Henri Matisse and his paper cut outs! This lesson also includes an Art History lesson about Henri Matisse and his creative journey through colour.
Following the Art History lesson is a step by step art lesson using minimal materials and results in a 3D bulletin board display for your classroom. A series of slides guides you and your class through each step and provides a visual image as well. This lesson is for Grades 1-6. The older your students, the more details they can add with paper and scissors. Younger grades will also have stunning results with their cut outs!
