2nd Grade Matisse Collage

The 2nd Grade students learned about the life and artwork of Henri Matisse.  Students learned that Matisse loved to use his scissors to make various shapes overlapping to create a collage.  He rarely threw any scraps away.  Students learned the difference between positive and negative space.  Students also learned the difference between geometric and organic shapes.  The students created a collage with many overlapping geometric and organic shapes using the positive and negative images just like Henri Matisse did!
