Scissors, Glue, Matisse and our Awesome Dads

The first weeks of the Summer are usually spent practicing important skills and learning about some art basics. We read a book called Henri's Scissors by Jeanette Winter. This book was about Henri Matisse and his love of color, shapes and scissors. We thought this would be a great time to do some cutting and gluing.

The children made brightly colored collages that would have made Matisse proud. We put them in our magic shrinking machine and made post cards for our Dads for Father's Day. The children who were able wrote out their cards. Our younger friends had some help.

Look for the original collages on our work room wall. 

We hope that all of our Imagine Dads had a very happy Father's Day!
