What is Happening the Week of January 9th

We are starting our Winter session this week with some new classes. We have added Paper Mache and Teen Art Journal classes. This week we will be inspired by a still life project by French artist Henri Matisse.

A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). With origins in the Middle Ages and Ancient Greek/Roman art, still life paintings give the us more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition than do projects of  landscape or portraits.
