One of Rainbow Belleâ€™s favourite crafty activities is making collages and sheâ€™s not alone â€“Â some very famous artists and illustrators make collages, too.Henri Matisse was a famous French artist who also loved to cut out colourful shapes and make collages. One of his most famous collages is ‘The Snailâ€™. Though it doesnâ€™t look exactly like a snail, itâ€™s a lot of fun to make!
We made this one using leftover sweet wrappers, some glue and a square sheet of white paper.
The fun thing about collage is that you can use scraps of old paper â€“Â newspapers, birthday cards, sweet wrappers, wrapping paper â€“Â to make completely new pictures!
Why not get inspired by Matisse and Eric Carle and make a collage of your favourite animal or insect? Or you could just make a beautiful rainbow!
Whatever you choose to do, we hope you have some collage fun this week and donâ€™t forget to email your pictures and weâ€™ll post them here!
