Inspired by Matisse- Third and Fourth Grade Collages

Third and fourth grade artists looked at examples of collages by Henri Matisse.  

We also watched two short videos about Matisse.  The first is a collection of Matisse's collages with a song by Greg Percy.  The second is a beautiful clip of Matisse working with paper cutouts. 

Students chose themes based on the collages and began working with colorful paper scraps. 


  1. I love Matisse cut paper - Your students look like they are having such fun!

  2. They are loving making their collages. The students all agreed that they really like Matisse's work.
