"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 an online art class where tutor Frances Stanfield will guide you through Matisse's playful approach to art making.
Matisse is best known for both his delightfully fluid drawing style and exquisite use of colour, particularly in his simplistic cut out works. 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 making our cut outs from a series of images which Frances will be presenting to you and from still life.
This class is suitable for ALL LEVELS
