After trying several unsuccessful Matisse-inspired projects, this one really stuck. I think it’s because of the limited color palette and underwater theme. Students really latched onto the concept of drawing with scissors and were inspired by YouTube videos of Matisse working from a wheelchair. Overcoming obstacles and working with a disability are great life lessons to talk about during this lesson too.
