Artist of the Week: Henri Matisse - January 26th & 28th

For the week of January 26th, the Artist of the Week is Henri Matisse, a French artist known for his use of color. Students will learn about his life, art techniques and the time and culture in which he lived. Students will then have the chance to try out some of the  art techniques of Matisse and the fauvist movement.

Monday, January 26th, 2:30 to 3:50  - FULL
Wednesday, January 28st, 2:30 to 3:50 - FOUR spaces available

Students will use bright colors to create their own Matisse-inspired aquarium still life, then get to experiment with "painting with scissors", just as Matisse did during his later years.

NOTE ON AGE RECOMMENDATIONS: My Age 6 - 9 classes are full with a waiting list for the semester and the age 10+ classes are empty. I am changing all my art classes to ages 6 - 10. The Monday and Wednesday classes will be the same curriculum as a result. As always, age limits are guidelines. You know your children better than I do. Focused five year olds are welcome as are pre-teens who want to learn and don't mind a class full of "little kids".
