This weeks Open Ended Art theme is Henri Matisse. At first I had no idea what to do with this, so I Googled Henri Matisse. Emily and I took a look at his paper collages. I asked Emily which ones she liked the best and then printed the picture out for her. I cut out all the shapes and then gave Emily glue and the printout and let her do her thing.

After she finished her first Matisse she said “Mommy I want to do the one with the squares now” so of course we did that one too!

I loved this project so much! Everyone's collage came out so beautiful! Definitely have to clear a spot on the fridge for these works of art!
Looked like she had fun!
You can see she was really concentrating on her project. They turned out great!
Aww, good job Emily!
So cool that she was so into this project!
I like your idea to print out Matisse's work and cut out his shapes for her to place on her own work.
They came out great!!!
I love the La Gerbe! She did such a great job :)
I really like you approach, and Emily did awesome. Now I am looking forward to reading a Matisse book that Adventure of Bear recommended and then making another Matisse project.
