Durkin visits Batesville Primary School
First Grade students at Batesville Primary School created Henri Matisse inspired collages with guest artist, Patrick Durkin on February 21, 2020. Students learned that later in life, when Matisse was ill, he was no longer able to get out of bed to paint. Therefore, his assistants painted paper for him and he used his scissors as his main art tool to create his most famous masterpieces. Students were able to learn this technique and how you can cut shapes and designs to create a successful composition.
