Objective

Students will create a simple version of an impossible knot, inspired by Henri Matisse.

Inspired by Matisse's Headpiece.

Steps

  1. First, your students will try to create the knot without any instruction.
  2. Next, they'll draw the structure (in pencil!)
  3. Finally, we built on the structure to complete the knot in pen. Feel free to pause this third step as you go!
