Henri Matisse Game
And that’s how you play this Henri Matisse game!
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.

Kids love having the structure of the rolling dice if they are scared to draw. Thanks! – Julie I M
My younger students love cutting shapes. This activity will provide them excellent guidance for cutting shapes, and yet allow them to have fun creating a Matisse masterpiece. – Ellen M.
Loved this take on making a college. It gives some direction, so students aren’t trying to decide what to make, yet they can still be creative. The possible variations are endless so each project is unique. These art projects are so easy to include in a study of an artist or the time period when they lived. Great versatility. – Martha S.
