Service Description

Please join us for an exciting studio day exploring French Master Henri Matisse and his ongoing influence on generations of artists and their work. The day will begin with a brief history and overview of his artistic contribution — specifically interiors, still life, landscape and the figure (examining his use of synthetic contour in particular.) Please research some of his work, and bring photographs, sketches, or works in progress that might be a good fit to work from. Some starting points: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Matisse https://web.archive.org/web/20140326120442/http://www.henri-matisse.net/ https://www.moma.org/artists/3832 MATERIAL LIST: Start a box a couple of weeks before the workshop, toss in anything that appeals to you that you may want to have on hand or in the car. Always better to be over prepared or willing to share. Save receipts for anything you purchase so you can return it if not used. Your choice of acrylic paint, minimum 3 supports any size, but why not be ambitious? (Canvas, panel, paper, Mylar... etc. Up to you.) Some drawing implements, ( pencil, charcoal, conte, acrylic markers...etc.) Mixed media choices for collage(optional) Heavy body acrylic gel for adhesive, or glue sticks.
