Henri Matisse and clay texture

Students have been learning about Henri Matisse in second grade. Matisse is noted for the term "collage" to describe art created with cut paper. This second grade fruit bowl is an example of collage.

This clay sculpture came to us after a discussion on texture in fourth grade.

This is a pop up created by a fourth grade artist at our collage table. Many of our students learn how to manipulate paper in 3-dimensions prior to moving on to clay or recycled sculpture.
