Drawing with Scissors

Drawing with Scissors

Reception Bears have been learning about the artist Henri Matisse. They discovered how, when Matisse became ill and found it difficult to paint, he found a new way to `draw´ - using scissors to cut out shapes. Inspired by Matisse´s wonderful cut-outs, they created their own colourful and imaginative collages.
