"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 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 an image making tool and the first is Drawing with Sticks. (You don't have to attend both!) https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/henri-matisse-online-drawing-from-life-with-sticks-tickets-101201959786

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.
