Henri Matisse: Drawing with Scissors - Smart About Art


Drawing with scissors? Is that even possible? Yes, it is! Henri Matisse was the artist who made his famous artistic cut-out designs with scissors. Twenty of these are included in this story about Matisse so you can see for yourself how this art form works.

This is a short book on his life and work, written by a child and easy enough for children to read. It also encourages imitation of this influential twentieth century artist as the author of the book shows works she creates in Matisse’s style. A good buy for anyone learning more about appreciating art and the creative genius of many artists whose skill reflects the image of the God who has given us His image!

We'd love to hear from you.
