For the first graders' first project, we talked about how Matisse would "paint with scissors" by using paper cutouts. I have students complete freedom to make whatever they wanted using any colors on black paper. The only rule was that I shouldn't see any pencil marks. I did this to get a feel of the students' skills and creativity before introducing them to a more structured project. Some of the results were so creative!
Artist: Henri Matisse

A 6 year old thought of this! So creative!
