Read about the artist Henri Matisse at this website:


At the end of his career, Matisse began creating compositions using cut paper. He began "drawing with scissors" after some health issues left him confined to a wheelchair and his restricted movement made it too difficult for him to paint. He would cut paper and then direct his assistants in arranging the composition. Larger arrangements were placed directly onto the walls of his studio, and reconfigured until he was happy with their placement.

Now It's Your Turn!

The Project:

Use paper to cut and arrange a composition in the style of Henri Matisse.

You Will Need:

  1. coloured paper (or coloured in paper/draw patterns on plain paper if you do not have any)
  2. scissors
  3. a larger piece of paper or a board for your finished art
  4. glue –pritt stick would be best

The Process:

  1. Use your scissors to cut shapes from the coloured paper. You can try to emulate Matisse's style, or get creative and find your own style!
  2. When you are done cutting shapes, carefully arrange them onto your larger paper or board. Think about colour relationships and composition.
  3. When everything is in the right place, glue each shape to your larger paper or board.


If you would like to share your art with us, ask your parents to email your masterpieces to the school office and add your teacher’s name to the email.
