The focus of the four-part Conversations in Art History class will be the life and work of artist Henri Matisse. Collaborative projects will encourage exploration of Matisse’s art in fun, supportive, and inventive ways. The goal is to first learn about the artist and, secondly, to assimilate that into the students’ own art techniques. Students will share their own perspectives on the artist's style and sensibility during discussions and visual exercises. Students are welcome to bring any books or information on Matisse to share and are encouraged to bring their own sketchbook. This class is for everyone age 16 and over. All skill levels are welcome, and all supplies will be provided. Pre-registration is required and online registration is preferred. Having trouble registering for class online? Please call us at (805) 525-5554.
