Tell me more about the art themes included

SHAPE SHIFTERS
Recognising the shapes that we see in our world helps to improve our art skills. We look at Henri Matisse and his beautiful free-form paper-cuts, at Sonia Delaunay and her fascinating circles, and finally at Anni Albers and her mesmerising woven art pieces.


TREMENDOUS TREES
Back to nature… to be inspired by Piet Mondrian’s love of lines, and at the way he breaks down trees into their most simplified form; by Emily Carr’s trees, filled with movement and depth. And at Henri Rousseau’s depictions of dense jungles – all of which inspire us to create our own multi-media collages.


TACTILE TEXTURE
The texture of a work, the tactile quality of its surface, appeals to our sense of touch and can evoke feelings of pleasure, discomfort or familiarity. We look at how Van Gogh simulates the sensation of texture in his famous ‘Starry Night’ painting; at how Eric Carle uses painted collage papers; and at how Cy Twombly’s layering of thick paint creates abstract etching-type works of art.
