Henri Matisse did a great collection of paper cutouts called Jazz.... My
students enjoy viewing the slides and listening to the tape from the
National Gallery loan program. It is free. We then do our own version of
paper cutout collages using the themes from Matisse that relate to the
lives of the students.
