THE 2014 MATISSE SUMMER TEACHER INSTITUTE IS FULL. As one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954) fundamentally altered the course of modern art with his stylistic innovations. Across a succession of stylistic periods, Matisse aimed to discover the “essential character of things” through art that expressed balance and serenity. He experimented throughout his career with abandoning conventional perspective and form in favor of dramatically simplified areas of pure color, flat shapes and decorative patterns. This four-day teacher institute focuses on the work of Henri Matisse, concentrating on building compositions, color theory, pattern, and figure study. For teachers only. 


Educator Workshops are generously funded by USAA and JP Morgan Chase.
