Product Description

Bright, beautiful mural style project for Grades 3 - 6. You, a sub, or volunteer will love the easy "follow-along" digital PDF format. The images do the teaching, making it a win-win for everyone with fabulous results.

First, use our Free Matisse frontload for a little bit of art history and a lot of inspiration.

Then onto the presentation that includes a quick overview of otters and sea stars which are keystone animals. Keystone animals play an imperative, unifying role in their environment.

Next, students use bright colored paper to create their own individual Matisse inspired, "cut-out" sea life collage as they follow along with the instructional images.

.

Using our templates, students can cut out black otters and starfish. These will be used to create a unifying element to the mural once all the individual collages are installed together. The animals create a unifying element to the art, just like they do tho their environment.

When all the collages and unifying elements are mounted together you have one big, bright and bold collaborative mural, just like Matisse created!

The Project Presentation includes:

  • Teacher Prep Pages that explain supplies and timing.
  • Keystone animal frontload with beautiful images.
  • Bright and colorful instructional slides students and teachers can easily follow.
  • Instructions on how to cut out a sand dollar, folding it "snowflake style."
  • Templates for Otters and Sea Stars at the right scale for the project.

So Easy to Use!

  • Show Project Presentation PDF on a smartboard.
  • Use it for self-guided lessons on a tablet.
  • Use a tablet in centers.
  • Print it out for your reference.
  • Load the lesson onto your phone and show it through a document camera. It works!

In this lesson, students will learn

  • How to "paint with scissors" and create Matisse inspired "cut-outs."
  • How to use balance in their collage.
  • How to work collaboratively to install a unified artwork.
  • What keystone animals are and their importance.
  • About Henri Matisse

Students are fascinated by this video from Tate Modern on Henri Matisse and his cut-outs. It is such a great inspiration for this project and is under 5 minutes long.
