Art After Noon: Henri Matisse-Inspired Collage and Cut-Outs


Registration for this event is no longer open.

Program Description

Event Details

Please join visual artist and educator Maeve Eichelberger for an upcoming  workshop focusing on ‘cut-out’ collages by Henri Matisse. Using materials found within your home, we will explore the infamous painter Matisse and his final decade's journey of creating forms, shapes, figures and animals from colored papers--using only a pair of scissors.  

In this 1.5 hour workshop will become inspired by his various Cut-outs, learn about positive and negative space in art, and create our own compositions from cut out papers and fibers. No need to throw that junk mail away, save it and come ready to explore the simplicity of color, shape and form.  


Materials list:  

• Construction paper, magazines, newspaper, advertisements 

• Bristol board, canvas boards, or thick paper (maybe even a cereal box) 

• Scissors  

• Glue (stick or bottle)
