Henri Matisse, a French, post-impressionist painter, was well known for his paper cuts and collages created later in his life. When his physical health prevented him from continuing to paint masterpieces, he continued to create, and his later work truly defined him as an artist. Learn about his life and quest to be creative, despite his physical limitations. Today’s session will offer an experiential art making to create a “Matisse-like” collage.
