Art Club Fauvism


Fauvism is the name applied to the work produced by a group of artists (which included Henri Matisse and André Derain) from around 1905 to 1910. It is characterised by strong colours and fierce brushwork.

Our Art Club students painted elephants and then additional animals focusing on layering of colours, allowing one colour to dry before applying next layer, placement of colour, use of cold colours for shadow areas and use of warm tone to indicate lighter areas.

These are examples of some of their work through its stages...
