“Pollock and Matisse both used movement to create art,” says Bentley-Flannery. “Every drop of splattered paint from Pollock’s brush and every angle of Matisse’s scissor cut-outs suggest movement,” she says. This program is for both the artist and the budding artist says Bentley-Flannery. “It’s important to play with paint, create something colorful and have fun in the library at least once a month!” she says. During the hands-on program Bentley-Flannery will introduce the artists through poetry, biographies, non-fiction books and apps.
