Artists: Matisse

STAINED GLASS

My current Year 3 class created this stained glass window, inspired by Matisse’s Tree of Life.

Each child cut brightly coloured tissue paper into nature inspired shapes and carefully stuck them onto a white sheet with a paint brush and PVA glue mixed with water.

Once the pieces were dry the children glued a silver card frame on top and I trimmed the edges using a craft knife. Each piece was then taped at the back to make a large scale panel.

Our piece was entered into a competition run by Friends of the Earth to win a solar panel for the school.  For more images, and to see us in action, go to:

PAPER CUT OUTS

 These paper cut out collages, also inspired by Matisse,  were created by KS1 and KS2 children.
