Discover how Henri Matisse created some of his most inspiring work with a pair of scissors and colored paper! At the age of 71, Matisse became so ill that he could no longer paint or sculpt. This illuminating program shows how his memories of trips to the South Pacific prompted him to continue his work and influenced his paper masterworks of abstraction. Students will see how he first cut small paper "maquettes" to be used as models in creating books, prints, fabrics, and stained glass and then moved on to create murals as long as 53 feet!
