Henri Matisse “Creole Dancer”
Modern Masters video: Matisse (part one of six – excellent series!)
You may also check out children’s books about Henri Matisse from the Downers Grove library or the Hillcrest LRC. A perfect one that could be read in class is called Henri’s Scissors by Jeanette Winter. Another one is Matisse The King of Color by Laurence Anholt.
