Welcome to Term 2 2024 – Fauvism | Then & Now

 

In this 8-week course, students will develop and further understand the creative process and progress their art technique in a fun and supportive environment.

 

This term we start with Line Drawings in ink based on the works of Henri Matisse and we look at his influence on modern art. We then step into Self Portraits, looking at the works of Paul Gauguin, Andre Derain and Ken Done.

 

Then its Colourful Interiors and the wonderous views through the windows created by Matisse and Maurice de Vlaminck and then we explore the Colourful Landscapes of Paul Gauguin and Vassily Kandinsky.

 

We round out the term with a look at some Australian Contemporary Artists influenced by the Fauves including Joan Blond and Archibald Finalist, Katherine Hattam.

 

We will explore inks, acrylic paint, gouache, oil pastels, watercolours, mixed media, collage and pen & wash. Other techniques will include drawing as drawing underpins most of our process art techniques. We will also explore a variety of subject matters related to portraiture, landscapes, animals, still life, urban landscapes and the human figure.
