Second grade Henri Matisse fishbowls

2nd grade artists are learning about the life and art of Henri Matisse.  We read the book "The Colorful Dreamer: The Story of Henri Matisse" as well as the book, "Henri's Scissors."After admiring many of Matisse's colorful works of art, we were inspired by his "Goldfish" art. We created our own collages and used some of Matisse's signature shapes.

  1. Are the fish and bowls also made from cut paper?
