This week, we have used the work of Henri Matisse as the foundations for our learning.
Matisse’sTwo Masks (The Tomato), is
one of our favourite cut outs by Matisse.
When we were discussing the piece, we asked: What can you see?
William saw ……
“A man with diamond eyes”
Whereas Jonathan saw “A Lion “
Our Focus Book is Henri`s Scissors-a story which tells us how Matisse, as an old man began to draw with scissors. As a group we worked together drawing with scissors to create spectacular Early Years cut outs in the style of Matisse. Our children loved this activity.
