YoungDementia UK worked together on this amazing collage of Mlle Claus. Over 2 sessions we worked together as a group to produce a response to Manet’s portrait. Emma Reynard, our artist supported the group to think of what Mlle Claus was wearing, the textures, where she had been on holiday, how she was feeling, what she was thinking. we then used these responses to choose materials, textures and colours to create a segment of the painting which, when put together creates this fantastic collage.
The final piece comes together to create a rich, textured interpretation of the portrait, personification how everyone in the group came together to create this piece of art. The collage will be on exhibition during the Manet Community Exhibition (9 June 2015 to end of July)
