Matisse's Magical Trail by Tim Hopgood & Sam Boughton

Famous Artists: About Henri Matisse in 1 minute

See the colorful Paintings and collage cut outs of Fauvist artist Henri Matisse 1869-1954. Famous artist bio in 1 minute.

Henri Matisse is a French artist known for making colourful works of art. He used a variety of materials in his work, as Matisse became older, he began to work with brightly coloured paper and would ‘paint with scissors’ to cut out shapes, animals, leaves, dancers and flowers and then arrange them. One of Matisse's most famous works is called The Snail, he made this in 1953.Does the spiral pattern of shapes remind you of anything?

We are going to create our very own version of Matisse’s ‘The Snail’.

You will need:

  • brightly coloured paper (you could paint pieces of paper and leave them to dry and cut those up later)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pencil
  • paper to draw the snail shape on
  • music to inspire you (your favourite tunes will be perfect)
  • creativity (essential)


  1. turn on your favourite music
  2. clear a space to work
  3. set out some plain paper
  4. draw the outline of your snail.
  5. cut out squares from your coloured paper 
  6. stick onto your snail in a spiral pattern
  7. write your name on the bottom - now you are a true artist.
