Get ready for an explosion of color! This month's My Artist Box is all about Henri Matisse, a 20th century painter who is known for his bold use of color and pioneering work with paper cut-outs.
There are so many colors in this box: blues, pinks, greens, and more! Kids will start by learning what inspired Matisse to break with tradition and use such unexpected colors in his work. Then they'll get busy creating their own masterpieces! They'll carefully study two of Matisse's pieces and recreate their own versions. They'll also explore two new techniques: collage and symmetry. The final project is a brightly colored paper mache bowl inspired by one of Matisse's largest pieces of art.
