We’ve got an incredible number of you interested in this class but we can only host a limited number so please book as soon as you can to secure your place and avoid Matisse FOMO!
“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.” – Henri Matisse
This is one of three online drawing classes where tutor Frances Stanfield will guide you through Matisse’s playful approach to art making. This second session adopts Matisse’s use of scissors as a image making tool and the first is Drawing with Sticks and the third we have BOTH Frances and Lucy teaching drawing a view from your window. (You don’t have to attend all three!)
Matisse is best known for both his delightfully fluid drawing style and exquisite use of colour, particularly in his simplistic cut out works. In both sessions you will be engaged in mimicking Matisse’s expressive and restlessly experimental way of working to inspire you in your own creative endeavours.
In this class we will be drawing from figurative images made by a number of different artists and from still life.
This class is suitable for ALL LEVELS
Everyone is welcome to join in on this Pay What You Can class… we know this is a difficult and uncertain time for many and we want to do our best to support you – As you are all probably aware, for the three of us at LDG creativity is our life-blood and our only source of income.

You will need:
*Paper – you can use colour paper or you can paint/colour in paper prior to the class – Matisse painted his paper with Gouache if you want to really get your Matisse game on!
*A collection of organic matter such as leaves and flowers
*Optional, but handy – pins and a piece of cardboard as big as your paper
OR Masking Tape/Sticky Tape
Please note neither your camera or audio will be on for this session- only the tutors will be seen and heard but you will be able to communicate in the chat if you wish 🙂

Anything you donate will go directly to helping Marie Curie Nurses and hospices care for dying people at this unprecedented time of need. We’ve committed to our NHS partners that we will be there to deliver care, and we’ve got to continue to be there.
And that’s not all! Anyone who donates to one or more quizzes throughout the series will be entered into a prize draw to win one of the prizes which have so generously been donated to us, such as:
– one of five Superdrug self-care bundles
– a John Lewis voucher worth £50
– an overnight stay at Beachcroft Beach Huts in East Sussex, breakfast included
So, register your interest or click attend, good luck and let’s get quizzing!

Winners will be randomly picked from their PayPal account details. If you donated by text, or if you want to enter without donating, please email email@example.com with the subject line ‘Prize Draw’. Winners will be contacted via their email address.

Saturday 11 – 12:30
Join Luisa Maria MacCormack as we travel from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, exploring the Great Women Artists of the Western Canon.
Did you know that of the thousands of paintings on display at the National Gallery, only 20 were created by women? Did you know that only around 5% of the work major permanent collections worldwide is by women artists? Did you know that on average Less than 5% of the artists in permanent collection’s modern art sections are women, but 85% of the nudes are female? Can you name five female artists who lived before the twentieth century? Can you answer Linda Nochlin’s infamous question; WHY HAVE THERE BEEN NO GREAT WOMEN ARTISTS?
If not, its hardly surprising, the narratives of female artist have long been passed over by the patriarchal powers that be in favour of male perspectives, but this erasure was not complete, and this session aims to shine a light on the incredible female artists working in the western canon from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment.
We will discuss their lives, immerse ourselves in their works, explore the battles and prejudices they faced and how their artwork is being slowly resurrected to act as a symbol for the contemporary feminist movement.
