Create black-and-white collages of the nude model inspired by Manet's use of dramatic contrast

About

Manet's paintings were both celebrated and criticised for the use of extreme contrast. He often painted dark silhouettes against a pale background or the profile of a black suit against a white dress.

In making monochrome drawings of the nude model, we will experiment with collage and a range of drawing tools to create dynamic black-and-white compositions.
