Towards the end of his life, Henri Matisse created beautiful panels and even whole rooms covered with colorful paper cut-outs inspired by nature.

Join the Art After Work team in an exploration of joyful colors and shapes inspired by anything from coral reefs to flying birds. We’ll be using a variety of materials and tools including paper, scissors, glue, paint and stencils on a canvas backdrop to create our own unique abstract artworks.

Although van Gogh may not have had the happiest of lives, many of his works have become overwhelming popular symbols of beauty and tranquility. In this class, we’ll be exploring van Gogh’s use of bold colors and even bolder paint strokes to create our own still life version of brightly colored sunflowers in a vase.
