Fish Bowl Collages Inspired by: Henri Matisse and Eric Carle

My first grade students studied Henri Matisse, specifically looking at his Fish Bowl painting.  They learned how he created collages out of painted paper like Eric Carle.  He called it "drawing with scissors."  The students painted large sheets of paper.  We talked about color mixing and color schemes.  They used the painted paper to cut out the shapes for their Fish Bowl collages.
