“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 two stand-alone classes where tutor Frances Stanfield will guide you through Matisse’s playful approach to art making. This session adopts Matisse’s use of scissors as a drawing/painting tool and the other is â€œDrawing with Sticksâ€ which is now available as a recording on our website www.londondrawinggroup.com
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 Matisseâ€™s expressive and restlessly experimental way of working to inspire you in your own creative endeavours.
This class is suitable for ALL LEVELS
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/Bluetak
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 🙂
Tablets and phones are fine but THIS CLASS IS BEST VIEWED ON A LAPTOP OR COMPUTER
