Matisse Fish Bowls - Painting with Scissors

I just love how Matisse called his collage technique "painting with scissors".  It makes collage work seem so exciting.  In typical Matisse style these artworks ended up bright, colourful and fun!  There are quite a few lessons for this on the internet, I drew inspiration from a few yet especially the Artolazzi one.

 What you need:
  • White paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Accessories
  • Painted or marbled paper (we used our marbled paper left over from mothers day presents for most of the fish bowls)
  • Metallic paper (optional - I just put some out as I had some)
  • Paints (we just used tempera blocks)
  • Paint brushes

How to:
  • Show the children how to draw a 3D room
  • Paint making sure they use bring colours and put in some interesting wallpaper (in Mattise style)
  • Whilst background is drying they can cut out the fishbowl, fish, leaves for background and table
  • Glue onto background
The Results:
