Yesterday after school abstract painter Patricia Treib introduced her practice - inspired by Matisse- to a few savvy young artists at Girls Prep Middle School in Alphabet City. She shared an awesome presentation, new technique, and even some examples of her own paintings as well as modern master Matisse's!! Check out the drawings-turned-paintings made with large newsprint & by taping a brush to a long stick! A little bit of sum ink went a long way as Patricia taught us all a new way of thinking about painting and creating art!!!
