Week 1: Put your Fauvist Face Forward

Leave a comment

Welcome back, Weekly Workout-ers!

For the next 12 weeks we are going to explore some favorite art movements throughout history.  Brush off your sketchbook (or buy a new one for the new year – they are all 20% off right now, online or in store!) and gather your gouache paint and brushes for our first workout!  Introduce yourself with a self-portrait in a bright color palette getting inspiration from the bold Fauvists, such as Henri Matisse and Andre Derain.  Fauvism (from les Fauves, French for “the wild beasts”) focused on a loose brushwork and strong color choices, so don’t be afraid to represent your inner wild beast!

Now through Feb. 14th, all sketchbooks are 20% off and all brushes are 50% off MSRP (a few exclusions apply).  It’s a great time to freshen up that brush bouquet!
