Matisse Inspired Sun Painting

  • Sunday, April 14 from 1-4pm

  • Instructor: Amy Schneider

  • Adult

Henri Matisse created some of his best-known art in the final decade of his life, and he made it from the simplest materials: shapes cut from colorful sheets of paper. He described these “cut-out” works as “drawing with scissors,” and he used this technique for works of various sizes and subjects. inspired by Matisse we will cut various shapes from simple paper and then learn techniques in sun painting a process using fabric paints, our paper shapes and the sun to print onto fabrics. We will be supplying fabrics and supplies needed, you are also welcome to bring your own 100% cotton pre-washed fabric.

Come join us us for a glass (or two) of wine in a relaxed, fun environment, with expert guidance. No experience necessary. You will be lead, step-by-step, through the creation of an original piece of art to take home! These are not a "paint by numbers" type of art class, we provide instructions, guidance and inspiration at the end of class each student will have their own unique creative interpretation of the project.
