Matisse is one is simply one of the most diverse artists of all time. In large part this could be due to the fact that he lived till the ripe old age of 85 and he worked all the way through those many years. He diligently explored the landscape in France and Morocco, still-life, the figure, and decorative work with his cut-outs.

Each week we will take an in depth look at each of these areas of his focus. We will explore his way of making art in each of these phases of his work and will be painting our own original works of art after the manner and under the influence of Henri Matisse.

We will look at his use of color, his compositions, painting styles. We will even have a model for the session that he will be looking at his figurative work.

Come prepared to be inspired to overflowing each week as we go deep with Matisse, one of the greatest artists.

Tuition includes model fee- one week
