Snail Trails with Matisse

Henri Matisse & Snails

Love this book and the artwork in it!  In this book a snail tells the story as he tries to find the artwork that looks like him.  He goes through a variety of artworks from famous artist to find him before he finds his Matisse portrait.  My students created "painting with scissors" snail shells then used water colors to paint the snail and background.  Oh they look so "snail-tisse"!
