Parent Instructions
Students will look at the artwork from the artist Henri Matisse and create a collage using construction paper or recycled magazines. Materials : Scissors, Glue, Construction Paper or Old magazines Steps: 1. Go over the pdf of the presentation on Henri Matisse, it can be found at Mr. McDougal's art page at the bottom of the screen. It should just pull up when you click it. 2. Discuss the definitions for Collage and Shape. 3. You may want to watch the video where Mati and Dada meet Mattise- this can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s37OoBXkYAc (This is just an optional step) 4. Gather construction paper or old magazines and begin cutting out various shapes. Some shapes could reflect those used by master artist Henri Matisse. 5. Glue down the shapes to create your collage. There is no incorrect way to compose your collage. I would suggest using a solid color or close to a solid color for your background. This tends to make the final product a bit more clear. 6. Have fun!
