Henri Matisse was the starting point for today's session although we glanced at
Jim Lambie, Jasper John and Mark Rothko too.
All art is an abstraction in some way: our approach this morning was to find an accessible way - no right or wrong - just having a go.
The excellent results are below. Well done everyone!
|Matisse: The Yellow Curtain, 1915|
|Matisse: The Sheaf 1953|
|Matisse: The Snail 1953|
|Jim Lambie: Fruit Market Edinburgh 1999|
|Jasper John: 0 through 9 1960|
Cutting and pasting using wallpaper, coloured paper and free magazines.
