Location: Crabtree Junior School, Harpenden, Herts

Inspired by Henri Matisse's fabulous cutouts (exhibited at the Tate Modern in 2014), this workshop is aimed at Primary school children from year 3 - 6. We evaluate Matisse's use of colour, repetition and layers, and the children create their own individual colourful collages, based on the sights, sounds and smells of the Carnival. Skills gained include: colour theory; understanding of form and colour to express emotion and movement; abstraction; cutting, layering.
