2020 Summer Program

The art of Henri Matisse (1869-1954) illustrates the power of persistence and invention. He was never afraid to change.

Paint in the bright colors that overtook the caution of his formal training. Collage: compose images with paper scraps and cuttings. Sculpt the goldfish he loved, and dancing figures. Construct a small window of light and color after his stained glass treasures. Cut the paper figures that blend the spirit and simplicity he turned to late in life.

Cut a paper dancer to join your group in a performance that will unite all your screens.
