1st Grade Buggin' Out for Matisse
How can paper and glue be used to create works of art to create works of art?
Why would artists choose to work in collage?
1st grade talked about why artists would choose to work solely in paper materials. How does paper work well for an artwork? How is it difficult to use paper in an artwork? Why did they think Matisse used cut paper?
1st grade is also studying insects in their curriculum so we talked about what parts of an insect we would need to build one out of cut paper. We used symmetry in creating our shapes and designing our insects.
