Drawing with Scissors: Matisse Cutouts
with Dana Harel

About the instructor, Dana Harel:

Dana Harel was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel. She received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Harel’s drawings evolve organically, fusing themes of man and environment. Her understanding of form through architecture leads to transformative depictions of human and animal, offering us an idea and not solution to our own internal struggle.

Harel's exhibitions have included the Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, California in 2014; Palo Alto Art Center in 2014; Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco in 2012; and the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Herzliya, Israel in 2010; the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, in 2011; the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art in 2011; and the Napa Valley Museum in 2010.

CLASS SCHEDULE:

  • Monday, March 12, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

VENUE: Barn Art Studio

The beauty of Matisse’s paper-cutouts is their liveliness, the colorful shapes bringing the paper to life. Using only paint, paper, and scissors students will “draw” their world, real and imagined. It is a simple technique elevated by the strategic use of composition, color, line character, and the additive/subtractive process.
