About this Event

*Please book your ticket via the eventbrite ticket button - we have an incredible number of bookings and are likely to sell out so please book as soon as you can to avoid Matisse FOMO! The link for the class will be sent 4 times prior to the start time - please check your junk folders for the link and further info - we will send these out a day before and on the day of the class. 

"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!) Drawing with Sticks is now available 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 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

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. Please be honest and pay what you can afford and our online classes will be able to run on a donations basis - if you are struggling, consider this one on the house! You just need to email us stating your situation at londondrawinggroup@gmail.com and we'll make it happen for you.

You will need:

*Some Scissors!

*Paper - you can use colour paper or you can paint/colour in paper prior to the class - Matisse painted his paper with Gouche 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 

AND/OR Bluetak, Masking Tape/Sticky Tape

WE HAVE SET UP AN EMAIL WITH THE ZOOM LINK TO ARRIVE IN YOUR INBOX 1 DAY BEFORE AND AGAIN 3 TIMES BEFORE WE START.

If you need help with anything please EMAIL us through eventbrite or directly at londondrawinggroup@gmail.com - facebook and instagram messages are easily lost.

And that's it! We're really looking forward to you joining us.

Love,

LDG
