Project Description

Project:  Matisse Gourd

1dbc360a

Create a gourd craft from Matisse's 1953 "La Gerbe" painting.  I will guide you step-by-step through the painting.  By the end of the class, you will have a lustrous gourd craft to showcase your talent.

Remember to post photos of your progress so that I can provide feedback, answers to questions, and encouragement along the way. Skillshare offers a supportive and fun community, and we will take advantage of this positive environment to help you maximize the value of this experience.

To get started, take a look at this list of class art supplies and important resources.

Together, we will discover and embrace the adventure of making abstract art.  Don't miss out on this colorful and inspirational journey!
