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
