Session One - Four week class

We will study of the figurative work of Henri Matisse, his drawings, paintings and paper cuts. We will look at his compositions, his use of color, motifs that he employed, and of course, how he approached the figure. Each class period we will look at and discuss a different, yet specific series of art, by Matisse. This class will push the student to create their own interpretation of an interior setting similar to what Matisse would have worked from. Model fees and some art supplies included in tuition.

Supply List can be found at the tab at the top of the page.
