Year 4 – Collage ‘Dancing Figures’
As part of Year 4’s Art lessons, they have been learning about the famous artist ‘Henri Matisse’. The children have researched his work and his life to find out why he created his wonderful masterpieces.
Matisse became ill, ended up in a wheelchair, and was unable to paint in style he was use to, so he came up with a new style and called it ‘Painting with Scissor’. The children were challenged to create their own art piece based on the same style and used scissors, a variety of warm and cool colours to create a collage with a focus on dancing figures.
Mrs Meek sent Megan Coyle an email with all the children work and she has now replied and put some of the children’s work on her blog.
