SO, if the children need to practice their scissor skills and get creative with colour who better to inspire them than Henry Matisse? One of the greatest artists well known for his 'cut-outs'. 
We encouraged the children to explore all sorts of shapes and to even re use the "off-cuts"; play with combinations of colour and most importantly have fun! Take a look at the marvellous Matisse inspired artwork and let us know what you think...
