Matisse and the Seashore Still Life

For this class, we will look at a series of still life paintings that Henri Matisse did on the coast of Normandy in 1920 for inspiration. These works combine the rocky coastline of that area with sea creatures which Matisse found on the shore displayed on the beach. We will create both a landscape and a still life using paint and later collage to render our own interpretation of a seashore still life.

Participants need to bring the following materials:

  • Two sheets of multi-media paper, 11”x 14” or so
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Glue - Elmer’s school glue is fine
  • Paint (acrylic or tempera would be ideal) red, yellow, blue, white and black
  • Two or three brushes, one detail, one 1/2” wide, one 1” wide
  • One palette, 12” square cardboard wrapped in tinfoil

This is a 3-class series being held on Wednesdays 11am-12:30pm, starting January 11th:

  • 1/11
  • 1/18
  • 1/25

All registrants are required to attend the first class of a series. If absent, your spot will be given to the next in line on the Waitlist.

 

About Joel Adas - I have been teaching painting, drawing, and collage to all ages for 30 years. I grew up in Highland Park, New Jersey but moved to Brooklyn, New York in the mid 1990s.  I’ve exhibited my paintings extensively in New York and abroad and throughout my years in Brooklyn continued to teach in schools and community centers. My basic approach is to combine art making with some art history and a sense of where certain ideas and approaches to art come from.
