Henri Matisse was a French artist. He worked with bright, vibrant colours and is best known for his 'cut out' pictures.

Doing the activity:
As Matisse grew older his eyesight and health started to faulter. It was hard for him to paint and instead used paper and scissors to cut out shapes; with these he made collages.
He was very particular about where the shapes went on the paper.
He had someone to help him pin them on the wall and move them around until he was happy with where the shape was put. See if you can do the same! Cut shapes out of the paper and place them to try and make a collage of your own.
What sort of colour schemes can you make with paper? (using the colour theory that "Lagoon" uses, what other environments can you inspire with colour?
Match the colour: Below are a list of environmental elements, why not colour in the squares next to them in the colours that remind you of them? (Two have been left at the end for you to make your own colour scheme)
