Workshop by Paul Fenner and Anna




 Lowestoft Art Group welcomed Paul Fenner and Anna last Friday who led a very interesting workshop based on the work of Henri Matisse.


First, using charcoal two tables were drawn set in the centre of the hall. Paul and Anna added objects on and under the tables at short intervals and they were added to each picture building up a montage of items.


For the next task each member divided their piece of paper into six sections and were given an item to draw in four minutes, then the item was drawn again in each section halving the time allowed for each drawing and then again - until it was just a few seconds. This minimalised what could be depicted in the time and gave very interesting results!


Lastly everyone chose an object and drew with scissors to create a cut out shape and then added shading with either charcoal or ink.


Anna created a table on the floor using masking tape and we arranged our objects on it to great effect.


 Paul and Anna were thanked for a very entertaining, thought provoking and fun evening.


The next meeting of the group will be on Friday May 25th  at 7 30.
