It is also fun to do Matisse type cutouts as a group project. I assigned a
section of bulletin board to a group, they chose a topic, each cut out
pieces and then they worked together to compose the picture. If I remember
correctly, Matisse composed his cutouts from the bed. Stepping back from
the bulletin board and working in this larger scale seemed to be closer to
the way he worked.
