Never painted before but recognize the art of Henri Matisse? Fauvism is the style of the early twentieth-century, emphasizing strong color over realistic representation, strong abstract and decorative components and simplification. Henri Matisse is one of the leaders of this movement.
Jana will introduce you to the materials, show you the basic principles of mixing and applying paints and guide you through the all the stages of creating a painting in the style of Henri Matisse. We will be painting “Gold Fishes”. If you would like to paint another painting, please consult with the instructor up to one week before the class.
ZOOM details will be emailed to registrants prior to the class.
