Publishers Description Keesia and Henri Matisse have the same birthday--New Year's Eve That's why she picks him for her artist report. She finds out that over his long career Matisse made paintings, sculpture, books, costumes, and her favorite--his cut-outs, or what Matisse called "drawing with scissors." The report is filled with about 20 of Matisse's masterpieces as well as artwork that Keesia has created in his "style" (cut-out leaves, drawings through windows, fauvist animals). As she follows Matisse through his life she discovers why he is considered one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

Reviews - What do customers think about Henri Matisse: Drawing with Scissors (Smart About Art)?
Not really great Jan 14, 2008
I think it was cute for parents of the child, but not really worth purchasing, I expectsd a graft project book. Waste of money.
Excellent concept, well executed Dec 15, 2007
An amusing introduction to the artist Matisse that I highly recommend. Written as though it's an 8-yr-old's school report, it is accessible and very informative. It includes reproductions of Matisse art and biographical information. Loved it. And it was useful as a teaching tool.
Disappointed in Matisse Drawing with Scissors Aug 12, 2006
Cute, but not as substantial as I would have liked.
