“Selfie Portraits” Matisse Style

Masters of art, like Matisse, were creating ‘selfies’ long before the term existed. But if you painted yourself would you put green or purple on your face? Colour was all important in Henri Matisse’s artworks as he introduced new ideas with incredible effect! We’ll use his “green line’ as a reference for your 2D work’s composition and you’ll learn to use colour to represent space and form.

Suitable for ages 6 – 12
